I am interested in the measurement of time and how our understanding of time shifts throughout our individual lives and collectively through history. Landscape presents a way to explore time through mark making, light, movement, and weather. I attempt to use mark making to simplify a moment in time. I paint in watercolor because to me, the immediacy of the material and the execution required to simplify complexity found in the landscape reflects how color and light describe form at certain moments in time.
