My work is founded in nature. It's a series of contemporary botanical and landscape mixed media paintings. The paintings are richly layered and show the history of the painting.As a process painter i'm interested in the evolution of the painting and the direction it takes as I am working on it. I start with a preliminary idea and let it go from there. I want to give the viewer a reason to pause for reflection and time to study the work.I currently have a studio in Bridgton, Maine and in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL where I spend the winters.
