A painter of mills, nostalgic relics, birds, and dead flowers.
The beauty and unfetter of the abandoned landscape, open spaces with dark lines on a white sky with random topography, and the calm and chaos of an unlivable, dilapidated space are the situations of intrigue on the roads I travel and paint.
The work is primarily in acrylic paint while using different media to bring a layered or tactile look. For a long time fabric was incorporated to bring a relief to the image but this has transitioned to other more subtle effects using elements of paper and acrylic medium. The resulting texture is the topography of the painting.
