Living and traveling on the west coast has been a constant inspiration for me. Lately I have been drawn to evolve an abstract image out of a natural setting. For instance, I am captivated but the reflection of a row of trees against a pond and find that the mirror effect gives way to a pleasing pattern. I am particularly compelled by vertical and horizontal lines in my work as well as the striations of color in nature. The colors I choose to use come to my mind in the moment. I like to bring a dreamy quality to my work by using a soft brush. I always search to pare down color and simplify my composition.
