About the Artist

Artist Statement

My artwork is an exploration of natural and rural settings. It is here that I feel most at peace and am prompted to do some deep introspective work.

I work in a realist style, which allows me to capture the subtle details found in nature. I work exclusively in black and white, because for me color is a distraction.

Every artwork begins by viscerally connecting with my subject matter before I ever put pencil to paper. I imagine I can hear the babbling of the brook and the wind through the trees, smell the dew on blades of grass, and feel the sunlight kissing the leaves.

I choose to work with ink on paper because it reminds me of the black and white etchings found in the illustrated classics I loved as a child.
