Remnants of Summer
Not For Sale
A garden emerges when it knows what it’s made from. So I’m trying to let go of things twisted and unforgotten left there like the remnants of all my summers.
My canvases are conceptual in that I collage my landscapes using cotton thread, steel cable, gold foil and acrylic to convey moments and subtle movements in nature. Not necessarily as nature appears but as nature feels: unspoken, indescribable and sometimes chaotic.

In their own way, these works celebrate nature’s unbounded spaces by framing its geometries, linear progressions and algorithms. By refining the basic elements of line, color and texture from the west coast landscapes around me, I pair nature’s complexities down to an appreciable moment of sublime wordless understanding.
""My intent is to capture the pondering presence we get from nature, not as it appears but as it feels to experience: incomprehensible, indescribable, and often very chaotic.""
