have worked with images of California Landscape for over twenty years in
painting, drawing and printmaking. Working with landscape in art. I
combine two things which matter greatly to me. I spend time outside,
being attentive to the wonders of nature, and then I have time alone in
the solitude of my studio.
When I paint, I reconnect with the awe, respect, deep joy and sense of
well being I gain from being outdoors and I'm amazed that some bits and
pieces of this get transferred, magically, to canvas and paper.
Art invites contemplation, creativity, and discipline to merge in a form
that, when it succeeds, can be framed and hung on a wall to transport the
viewer to that inner and outer place. Creating art challenges the hand,
heart, intellect and the imagination.
