I am simply inspired by what I see. By nature, by shapes, by colors. By realism and abstraction. By colors near and distant. By humanity's presence in nature. Often the inspiration is something that randomly catches my attention, as I go about doing other things. I don't really question the inspiration. I translate that inspiration into paintings and woodblock prints. I start the work with an idea of why the subject inspired me. Usually, when I am working on the image, something else reveals itself. It's really wonderful when I can keep falling in love with new things about the image as I am working on it.

I have learned from Doug Braithwaite, Stephanie Dykes, David Dornan, Chris Miles, Matt Brown, Aline Ordman, Todd Bonita and John LeCours.
