As I look at landscape I retain the forms, colors, and textures in my memory as separate elements. On the canvas they combine in an altogether different way from how they appear in nature. A combination of these elements is consciously brought together and reconstituted to form a composition - a new place, a landscape-dream environment that has its own logic and integrity. I set up a tension between figuration and abstraction, between the familiar and the otherworldly, and between memory and imagination. My intention is to draw the viewer into an imagined and enchanted world, sometimes unsettling, sometimes mysterious.
