Caught between land and sky but neither one nor the other the elemental wonder of the sea connects us to each other and the environment , this fugitive element with its dramatic sense of space and light has been  enticing people to its shores since the beginning of time .

My paintings strive to capture the unknowable  abiding mystery and power of the sea the endlessly fascinating transitory  beauty that changes with the different weather and terrain either capturing the fleeting light from above or absorbing  the darkness from below. We marvel at this wonderous substance and this joyous connection can have a transformative power and bring feelings of escape and transcendence .
