My most recent research centers on my experiences backpacking through remote regions of Iceland. The physical, mental and emotional exertions encountered by walking over this terrain enables my imagination to expand outward as well as inward. The landscape becomes a series of events mapping out a corresponding structure to my inner self. My recent work refers to my physical and emotional priorities and combines painting with objects found and used during my sojourn in Iceland.
