Between Breath and the River 4
10 x 12 monotype, 2016
Growing up in rural New Hampshire, I developed a deep love of the natural world and continue to find it profoundly magical. For me painting and drawing are forms of travel, giving the sense of being in unfamiliar territory and the wonder of discovery. I begin without a map or idea of the outcome. I delve in and see where the adventure leads. My intent is to create images evocative enough to stop the viewer, give them a sense of wonder, and move them within.
