My paintings and recent sculpture interpret the Alaskan environment and man’s place in it.
Up to now, my work has focused on Southcentral Alaskan landscapes, cityscapes and the interaction between the two. I am especially intrigued by how humanity situates itself within the immensity of the Northern wilderness.
Our industry and structures change the landscape, and in turn, the landscape changes us. To the uninitiated eye, our footprint can seem unfinished and chaotic; it’s almost as if nature's majesty abnegates our need to instill our own beauty and order.
To my eye, this juxtaposition creates a poignancy that inspires my work.
