My figurative landscapes are inspired by mythology and by the mountains I live near. The figures act in harmony with the moods of nature. They partake in rituals, emerge out of mist and are nearly always close to water, the symbol of life. They meditate on the shores of and in the sanctuary of womb like mountain lakes or dance near bubbling waterfalls. Here beauty, peace, mystery and the mystical reside. My goal is to make each painting a poem of color, light and form that captures the essence of my inspiration. The root of my artistic quest is the search for the sacred in the landscape and the human form.
