Artist Statement

Throughout my career as an artist, I constantly find myself building on from what I have previously learned and created.   I strive to push the medium of pastels to new limits and find ways to incorporate these new discoveries into my work. I have always been drawn to quiet, contemplative landscapes and no matter how often I incorporate new ideas and techniques into my paintings, the end result still reflects my mission that there is no stasis in nature, but paradoxically, despite [its] change at work, the natural world provides the opportunity to experience moments of deep stillness like no other.
