From the artist

Each time I set out to paint, I think about the preconceptions audiences have about landscape painting. I am constantly seeing new ways to address these preconceptions, to make the viewer feel they are looking for the first time, to forget what has already been seen, to even forget about landscape at all and be aware of only paint.
