Painter living in the Upstate NY.
My work is in response to the wooded landscapes that lie between Gilbertsville and Columbus, NY. These are spaces I travel through and live in daily, places where the horizons of hills and valley-views dart in and out between the thick lattice of branch and leaf, like single threads drawn through a loom. And in the intervals and interstices jagged blue shots of sky hang like grace notes in the air. And in time these thickets and groves and forested glens became endless textures of complexity – woven from lines and layers, dots and dashes, a textile forever recreating itself in new patterns and energies. My paintings are meant to capture some of that play and puzzelment of remembered experience. They are mementos in the broadest sense of that term.
