// Vision

My artwork comes from inspirations I find in my surroundings and memories of visual and spatial experiences I had as a child roaming outdoors in a valley with a view towards distant mountains. I experienced then freedom, connection, unity with the physical world, and a sense of the importance of bearing witness, as an artist, to what is present and experienced. Sensations I have felt, such as light, space, gravity, sounds, vibration, compel me to make art about the presence of these things I commune with. Places of my past have marked me and continue to speak to me through time.
