Abstract landscapes are the subject of my current series of work. My paintings reflect the essence of the landscape - land which is untouched by the presence of man. I'm intrigued by the patterns and textures found in dry, desolate deserts, in parched plains and in vast frozen terrain. I find a quiet, subdued beauty in what some may view to be bleak and barren. "It doesn't have to be beautiful to be true, but if it's true, it's beautiful."
