"Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves." ~John Muir

My work is about evocation not transcription. Speaking to our connection to the natural world through images that transcend specificity of place, where the viewer can bring their own experience to the work and therefore "complete" the work.  The way that light rakes across a field or charges the atmosphere at sunrise and sunset connect us to the larger nature of the world. Short moments restore our connection to the natural world- where that connection can become increasingly difficult in a society filled with the "noise" of  both internal and external activity.
