I am interested in painting landscapes that are not literal. In a previous time, I was a tapestry weaver, so am not surprised to carry over the building blocks and textures of a tapestry into my paintings. All of my work starts with loose sketches, some made outside, some made up.
In some paintings I retain more of the substance of the picture, but in others I completely paint it away. I have begun a whole new pallet after moving to San Luis Obispo from the desert a year ago and am enjoying where it takes me.
