Using oil paints to explore both the cultural and physical aspects of my region to articulate a form of self-understanding in the face of cultural and economic expansion. I seek to embody and convey the contemporary western landscape and the features that characterize this region. The pieces I create spark memories of place and time. For each of us, the vision is personal. But the record of visual memories binds us together within this locale.
