Artist Statement Submitted 2019My paintings and drawings explore Florida environments. My work is shaped by changing light, open space and atmosphere. The panels are completed en plein air in Pinellas County, Florida. Many of the sites are small tracts of nature adjacent to utility towers, commercial and residential development.
Drawn and painted layers are built up over months, sometimes years, per panel. My materials include silverpoint, natural red chalk, bamboo brush and ink, stand oils on chalk gesso and oil primed grounds.
