Current Research Interests

I am interested in observation and seeing as a way to become familiar with and learn about subjects and places I have not yet explored. In painting and drawing I respond visually to deepen in my understanding and appreciation for the subject. I work directly on site and from memory. Developing an understanding and feeling for materials is fundamental to my studio practice.

In teaching my goals are to guide students to develop a visual vocabulary upon which to build a personal language of expression. I feel each person's unique way of seeing can be developed from the beginning by identifying the strengths in the ways s/he interprets visual information and by nurturing their ability to explore invention.
