I am fascinated by the sky - both by its subtle, transitory qualities,
and by its ability to alter the landscape. Much of my work is focused on the atmospheric relationship between the sky and the attendant land
and sea. In my work, I strive to integrate these realms through my use
of atmosphere for both perceptual and metaphorical purposes.
Through skies, I seek to allude to the infinite province of the Divine. I reference my own environment by the depiction of places that are important to me.
