I explore the influence of memory and the fleeting nature of the present moment through painting. In my landscapes I focus on the shifting impressions of the horizon line, the liminal space where land and water meet, and the layers of time that are found on the surface of the ground. In my figure paintings I try to capture tenuous and transitional times of life.
When my son was little we would go for walks and mark off a square foot in the ground or under a tree and discover the world that lived in that square. Painting is a similar process for me. Most of my work happens in the studio with memory, sketches or photographs as reference.
