For over 25 years my work as an artist has taken me to the water’s edge.

All of my work begins on location with walking, waiting, looking, drawing, mapping, and gathering.  Each site presents itself in a different way and so the finished work is always created and discovered from a long engagement with “place” and with paint or paper or sticks or stones.

I see narratives in the lines of waterways over the earth’s topography. There is language in the pattern of residue and shaped chaos at the high water mark. There are signs and portents in places of extraordinary natural beauty and extraordinary natural disaster. The marks and debris left at the water’s edge create a form of writing … each day telling a new, yet familiar story. My work is my translation of what I read there.
