My work is inspired by nature, and humans, as part of nature. Their creation is in part motivated by an ambition to extend American Landscape Painting into the 21st century. The original motivation for my craft based painting practice was to depict multiple views of subject matter related to the suburban American landscape. The purpose of depicting this subject matter in this manner, via this process, is to embody a sense of expansive “blooming” or “exploding” human activity. As well as create a kind of contemporary American landscape or “social scene” painting.
