The planet is a large, living, breathing, complex, layered, symbiotic and fragile ball of energy, giving us life-sustaining fuel for our bodies and souls. My current paintings explore this energy and our relationship to it, suggesting that we are just a small part of this amazing ecosystem. Our nature-themed screen savers and our picture windows can give us a false sense of what is really happening out there and where we fit in. My stylized vision of nature -- playing with scale, color, and composition -- is an attempt to express hope and positivity.
