I am a mixed media artist that paints wide-open vistas and intimate meandering waterways. I work to capture what I experience as the energy signature of water, land, desert, forest, and sky. Each type of landscape and cloudscape has its own vibration and effusive message I want to communicate through my choice of texture, mark, medium and color. I tend toward a bluesey-green palette with touches of warm reds, oranges, and deep yellows that reflect my “walk abouts” in Northern California, Arizona, and abroad. I veer more towards abstraction than realism because nature’s call and my response is truer to that form. I want the energy of color to sing you awake or hum you quietly down for a rest. You will find me walking in nature, soaking in the elements, examining the shadows and scooping up all the twinkles of the sun playing on the water’s edge.
