statement

These oil pastel paintings are from a recent series that I did while traveling around the Danish island of Bornholm. They were created by working up layers of images as they came to me and then incising through them with any blunt object that I could lay my hands on. When I travel I like to work with a small format sketchbook that I can keep close at hand to capture my first impression of a place and preserve the immediacy of the moment.
