Biography


Statement:
 
As a landscape artist, I join the league of painters who point to nature as the embodiment of truth.  Evidence of life can be experienced each day. The swelling of a flower, the rising crescendo as a sunset reaches its most intense hues, a mist that softens, a fierce eagle hovering above a body of water. These are examples of experiences that enrich and inform our lives.  
 
I have made a conscious decision to contribute beauty to the world through my art. I find camaraderie with landscape artists who work quietly in spite of a backdrop of world crisis. Skies are a window to a presence, much larger than we are. Stars and planets remind us that there are mysteries and a larger existence. Skies teach us of the constant and of a moment never to be repeated. What intensely bittersweet moment would be missed if a sunset did not complete its course? It is much better to experience and appreciate and then let go.  My art points to things beyond our normal preoccupations. I learn.
