I have always been fascinated with landscapes, particularly abandoned or isolated spaces that over the years have changed to become perennial records of time. Though the scenes I paint appear still, they are in a slow, continual state of transformation.

It is in these landscapes that I play with light and layout to create tension within the composition. The light source is typically strong and focused with accentuated shadows. I build a surface that is almost sculptural, and utilizing architectural and natural elements is key to my technique, helping me contrast structure and disorder. The process forms organically and unexpectedly, forcing me to adjust and mold the piece based on what happens naturally with each layer that I apply. I cut, carve, add, and subtract until the surface reflects the same complex quality as the subject matter.
