Artist statement: Living in Alaska has opened me up for a visual world where large shapes intermingle with shining streaks of brilliant color. Especially in Alaska, it is disrespectful to try to record a landscape image, so in my work I try to capture the feeling of the place- not the place itself.
I'm fascinated by the use of line, color, and graphic hard line separation of space, as it applies to our Alaskan landscapes. For me, Alaska has been a fruitful place. Its visual resources are endless.
