Nature is often connected to experiences of awe, inspiration and sometimes terror. These paintings are my personal creative responses to beauty observed during walks in various locations. While making these works, there was also an awareness of my destructive actions as an artist. As in nature, the forces of creation and destruction live side by side. I saw these paintings come and go through stages of calm and fury, stopping when I believed to have reached an aesthetic balance of these two forces.
