I’ve always been drawn to solitary experiences of landscape, in particular the feeling of being close to nature. These experiences, for me, are rooted in emotion. They provide a fleeting moment of connectedness to my environment and leave me with a desire for more. Living in remote, far West Texas provides endless opportunities to connect with the striking beauty of the high desert, it’s dramatic light and sparse terrain are extraordinary. But I’m equally intrigued by more humble views – the shimmering tree tops out my studio window or a particular color combination found in my garden. This compelling relationship to landscape has motivated my work for the past twenty years.
