I live and paint within the landscape of my Indiana farm.
My ongoing themes continue to be threaded by the changing seasons and weather patterns I observe while painting. For me it is like a conversation about the weather and all the hopeful growth wishes a neighborly farming conversation may contain. I recreate these memories, often giving the viewer an aerial spiritual perspective of my garden and fields.
My sense of sound is also mapped through the proximity of shapes and color palette choices layered harmoniously throughout the paintings. Nature makes its own line drawings in the soil’s surface for me to observe and to incorporate into my work. The fog is my favorite, however; so silent with no lines at all.
I really aspire to be an agrarian painter, passionate about the collision of colors from the land interacting on my canvas in front of me. My creative process is truly intertwined with my own sustainability–while gathering my food I’m storing information for the content of my work. I hope to preserve in paint much for all to imagine for themselves.
