panel from Three Waters, oil on canvas

I have always been interested in the influence of memory and the fleetingness of the present moment. I have explored this in my landscape drawings and paintings by focusing on the temporal fluidity of the horizon line, and the space where land, water and sky meet; in figure drawings and paintings by trying to capture particular but tenuous times of life; and in mixed media work that combines old photographs and journal pages with drawing.

I studied photography at Rochester Institute of Technology (BFA, 1981) and painting and mixed media art at Maryland Institute of Art (MFA, 1991). I live in Boulder, CO where I teach from my studio, openwindowstudio.org.
