Atmospheric Perspectives

These paintings demonstrate my desire to capture and share the experience of being a part of the natural world – away from the machines and technology that tend to isolate us from that world.  Like the 19th Century Romantic artists, I seek to both celebrate Nature and draw attention to its vulnerability; to capture the emotional experience and spiritual connection between humans and the natural world. As someone that is concerned about climate change and the exploitation of the environment, I also cannot avoid those issues in my work.
