Landscape painting combines my reverence for the natural world with deep curiosity about all aspects of natural history. The activity of thoughtful representational painting expands awareness & increases my ability to recognize natural patterns.
My goal is to create a visual environment that is transporting, where a viewer's senses are stimulated to recall the whisper of dune grass in the breeze, how the estuary mud squishes between the toes, and the psyche surrendering to tranquility and spaciousness.
Not photo-real, but keenly observed detail with looser passages, my thinly-glazed oil painting style is Contemporary Realism, with a special focus on ecology & water along the California coast.
Contributing to my design of painting compositions is my background as an architect, and a long history of camping, exploring, hiking & paddling. Nature is where my sense of comfort, delight & well-being is grounded.
