Plein Air

I'm fascinated with nature, and exploring the bond between man and the natural world. This bond can bring us happiness and peace, yet seems vulnerable in a time of astounding technological progression. 


I enter the field with my paints and immerse myself in its surroundings. I tune my senses to fuller awareness. Through meditated observation, I experience the light, color, sound; the weather, sea, sky, and land. My goal is to document these experiences through my art.
