Artist statement: I am an artist interested in the ethereal moments we experience when engaging with the natural world. My works is often a sort of collage of locations and memories that I shape together with imagination. When you let an experience with nature sit in your subconscious over time, the memories can blend together. You let go of unnecessary details and are left with a distilled version of the experience, a philosophy that guided such masters as J. M. W Turner and George Inness.
