Artist's Statement


Painting is a meditative practice; an outlet to release intuitive energy and let go of preconceived notions of self-imposed rules about how I interpret and portray the world. Using palette knives, sharp edged tools, and brushes I create a three-dimensional surface on the canvas; always striving to create a balance between the layers of impasto and the underlying depth of landscape beyond.

As a “third culture kid" growing up overseas, my family moved many times. I lived in Beirut, Lebanon in the midst of the civil war in the 70’s. I saw violence and lived in fear. The one thing that appeared to remain peaceful was the landscape, specifically the horizon. The landscape is still an escape for me and my “practice" is restorative as I create what I often call “inward landscapes.”
