My art is a visual expression of my intimate relationships to family and my surroundings. It is a search to unite the dichotomy of self and other, and a seeking out of the divine. Using landscape as subject matter I strive to create a visual vocabulary with line, shape, color, and movement to express a universal and spiritual way of seeing.
