My paintings explore how we connect to land as a form of identity.  I am interested in how places tell stories, create memories, and transfer meaning.My images act as personal landmarks to my own journeys, or path traveled. They invoke memories of particular experience, mood, and quality of light, in a certain place at a specific time. The work that I make comments on, and hopefully compliments the natural world, as an impression of place at the time of its discovery.
