Welcome to my site.
My paintings reflect the intimate and fragile relationship between man and nature. By incorporating the Japanese Zen Buddhist aesthetic of wabi-sabi I can create a stage where both nature and man-made surfaces and objects play out their balancing act. The aesthetic of wabi-sabi encourages a contemplative look at our lives through a meditative and disciplined search for humility and an understanding of our place in the physical world. It professes a belief that all things are incomplete, impermanent, and imperfect. One will discover the interaction of those tenets throughout the images in my compositions.

“Perhaps you’ll remember me. I’ve been to your studio a few times. I could only afford to buy a print, but it is the selection of that print that you may remember. When I saw it, it brought tears to my eyes and I had a very emotional response to it. No doubt that probably happens often with your work. I deeply love your work. Thank you for touching my soul and thank you for bringing such joy and beauty to all of us fortunate enough to know your work.”
