2015-2016 Journeys

My paintings use the landscape as expression of spiritual longing, private reverie and memory.

Many of my paintings are inspired by traveling or stories of journeys. When visiting other places I love to walk neighborhoods to see, hear and feel the atmosphere. Back in the studio I try to capture that feeling through paint. In 2015 I spent a month in Phnom Penh, Cambodia at an art residency. The spires on the Buddhist temples & traditional Khmer buildings spoke to me and have found their way into many of my paintings.
