Artist Statement

I find my inspiration in themes of transformation and in themes related to the seeking of -- and breaking of -- the connections to a whole. This theme often finds its way into my landscapes through the symbolism of islands, signal fires, and the disappearing, icy landscape of northern climes.


While I want the landscapes of Maine and Scandinavia to be recognizable in my work, these landscapes are also symbolic to me -- the dusky lighting of twilight and the soft light of the moon are to me the lighting of the subconscious, the setting in which big shifts happen .
