Field 2bio

Wild gardens, overgrown fields, oceans, wind and air inspire my work. The colors and movements of nature intuitively find their way into the paintings. While intuition leads the work, color relationships, space and light are important to me. I want the paintings to be experiential. I want them to be somewhere that feels familiar even though these are not real places.
