After winning the juried show "Beautiful Motion" last year at The Strand Gallery in Plattsburgh, I was given the opportunity to have a solo exhibit. I'm excited to have this opportunity to show a variety of my work that spans the period from 2009 until the present.
I have two general bodies of work; one is inspired by my native environment - scenes that capture a moment of beauty that I hope will pique the same awareness in others. An example is the piece above, which is from the Visitors Interpretive Center at Paul Smiths in the Adirondacks during the early fall.
My second body of work is made up of abstract collages with the earth as my theme. My inspiration for this series is more complex, hence the use of collage. With collage I can express the complexity of my thoughts about our Earth. Its a way for me to work through what I perceive as challenges we humans face.
