As an artist, painting is a form of story-telling, with personal, social, and ecological issues prevalent in my work. I consider art to be thought made visual. I use instinct, memory, intent, and metaphor to express something deeper going on below the surface of the picture plane, balancing narrative with real and abstract impressions of what has been seen seen and/or experienced. My work is layered both in meaning and technique, whether in oil paint or mixed- media watercolor with colored-pencil.
