It has awakened in me a desire to illuminate the very largest picture possible. These paintings are part of a continuing practice to re-translate the landscape as Earth, placing focus on the entirety of its parts as intimately interconnected. Multiple layers of pattern, texture and movement are combined and juxtaposed to address the constant flux of the environment and its impact on our outer and inner landscape.

"Our old familiar globe is suddenly melting, crying, acidifying, flooding and burning in ways that no human has ever seen."

- Bill McKibben

Sidestepping direct naming or description of 'place' helps me assimilate and respond to an increasingly unrecognizable planet. I work from the inside out relying wholly on my intuition and inner impulses in an effort to "calm the chaos" one mark at a time. It has become virtually impossible for me to paint or even look at an image of a landscape without regarding earth's plight - our plight.
As rapid changes continue to occur, I can't help but reflect on the coinciding changes in myself. Realizations of impermanence and the temporal are shaping my perception of the landscape and connection to it. (continued: please swipe to next page.)
