Dreams of Flying


"Everything I have ever done, and every piece of art I have made, has been influenced by a profound connection with nature.  My paintings are not literally about trees or birds, but about that anti-gravity feeling of being lifted up.  

My techniques include many layers of thin washes in both acrylics and oils, and some drawing with pastels and graphite.  I soften and cover up the basic drawing to achieve a dreamy or at times out-of-focus appearance.

Trees, to me at times, look not so much like they are growing upward from the earth, but are hanging from the sky.  I am painting the non-attachment of the spirit.  What I paint is not what I see before me but where my spirit wants to be."


“Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.”       ~Langston Hughes
