From the Artist:

As an artist I spend a lot of time reflecting inwardly as I paint outwardly.  I like the idea that we have an “inner landscape” – a map created from emotions, ideas, and sensations collected throughout our lives. No matter where I am, I feel like I’m filled with nature. When I close my eyes, I can easily conjure smells and the feel of  the forest floor or a field from my childhood on my feet, these memories are inside me and I use them to define the space I live in; sometimes consciously but often I think they color my day to day without even knowing.

As we become increasingly disconnected from the natural world, I think the memory of nature becomes even stronger inside each of us. If you only spent weekends in the woods or summers at your grandmothers or you have a park you visit from time to time, it becomes the quiet space inside you that you can escape to even when you aren’t there. This is what I’m painting in this new series of silhouetted landscapes.
