There are abstract qualities in the landscape that fascinate me and I guess my response to that is through form, surface, mark and color. A lifetime spent on the prairies has had a powerful influence on my ceramics and paintings.
Colorful painterly effects are incorporated on my primitive looking sculptures that are rarely left unscathed from a gash or a nudge that pushes them slightly off kilter. My paintings are loose, activated with layers of chaotic line and texture, fused with serene hues of skies and terrain.
There’s a beautiful tension in imperfection that I find exhilarating and so I‘ll continue to explore the possibilities of that.
Thanks for checking out my work,
