Growing up in the Great Lakes Region, water has always been a powerful symbol for me. It is intimately connected with the passage of time...of stability and change. Most of my current paintings do not reference the surrounding land. They focus on light, texture, shape and movement of water. Without a horizon line viewers are encouraged to meditate on the water; projecting themselves into the painting.
I've examined a wide variety of media and concepts, but consistently line and wash and watercolor are the most beautiful to my eye.
