"At the heart of my paintings are generic lines and forms depicting the dramatic outlines created by the interaction of water, weather, earth, and mankind on this continent. My essential concern is the primary shape rather than secondary detail and decoration. In keeping with my earlier experience with raku ceramics, I experiment with found materials including sands, minerals, and pigments to build up surface textures and shapes consistent with relief sculptural forms."
