“Geoism” is a term that I use to describe the style of my work. My paintings have a wide range of textures created by sculpting earthen materials and using native dyes whenever possible. I also use a wide range of other media to express the textures needed to capture geologic concepts and the beauty of nature.

This work "Reversed At Fault” is a simple example a reversed fault. When rock formations fault or separate from each other it can occur in a number of different ways, depending on the direction one block of rock moves in relation to the other. This painting demonstrates a reverse fault, where one section of the formation has been pushed upward, relative to the other. This is typical in an area dominated by a compressional tectonic system. When you have compressional tectonics usually there is mountain building associated near the area. Forces are pushing the rocks together causing them to rise. This is my stylized and simplified view of how a reversed fault appears.
