ARTIST STATEMENT

I began my career as a fine art photographer focused on the decisive moment and pursuing the magic of light. I looked for images that indicated a sense of universal wonderment and unity.

In my late 20s, I worked exclusively for conservation groups photographing threatened habitats and endangered species around the world. I photographed so many different mammals in water habitats that water itself became a primary focus for my artistic endeavors.

In the process of abstracting the qualities of water, as it transformed into its various aspects of light, color, movement, and energy, I began to experience a relationship with painting. By 1983, painting had become my primary means of artistic expression and landscape painting became the primary focus of my work.

My paintings are an expression of inspirations from nature and my relationship to the landscape. I strive to create harmony among the three forms of light available to an artist: surface light, the light of nature, and the light of spirit.

My art is about presence and place. I work in the landscape of Indiana, my home. Our roads, pastures, fields, and forests are the essence of our landscape, the American mid-west. The Indiana countryside is both simple and nourishing. It is in the basics of our landscape that one can see and feel the beauty of the essential, the elements of land and sky, of nature and humanity coming together. Rather than portraying the realism of a country scene, I am in pursuit of the experiential expression. When one stands alone in a field with grain and sky, wind and color as companions, an experience of unity can occur. I am interested in expressing the harmony of the seen and the unseen. This experience of unity, which brings with it a sense of awe, supports and guides my work. My paintings are an attempt to honor the beauty and magic of living in our time and place.
