Artist Statement

This series was inspired by a Horse Chestnut Tree and was painted with oils using a limited palette on linen canvas. The landscapes I create are from places I visit and return to over a long period of time. Creating a sense of mood in the landscape is what makes the connection in my work.


Watching the colors change after sunset is a treat. Growing up in the north, the long twilight hours were a time of reflection. Finding calmness in nature brings healing and balance, and painting landscapes allows me to reflect and focus on the calm and mystery of nature.
