Artist Statement

That quiet moment in nature when you create a mental snapshot; wondering how long will you remember that snippet of time before it dissipates from your memory. That moment you scramble to keep - I keep mine through the process of painting. Each brushstroke working with the next until that moment is captured. There is beauty in each of these tranquil moments and the final product is where I bare my story to the world on my canvas. Exposing the fluid movements of the sky and earth for everyone to share. The prairies, the mountains, the oceans – these moments are everywhere and yet stay with us for a finite amount of time.
