Imagination and dreams offer up imagery, methods, and materials to me from that inner world that synthesizes all the stimuli from cosmos, self and the outer world. Discovery of an image’s depth of meaning reveals itself in the mark making.
Art has threaded its way through my entire life, with periods of concentration surrounding my obtaining a degree in Studio Art from University of California, Berkeley, working as an artist in New York City, and years of studio work and shows. I have exhibited in venues including the San Jose Art Museum, the Berkeley Art Center, the Boulder Art Center, and the Museum of Friends, Colorado and my art work is in private collections around the country.
My additional degree in Landscape Architecture from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and many years working in that field utilized my natural feelings for structure, texture, repetition, and color, and travel has exposed me to many aesthetic vocabularies and values.
Energetic systems and the colors of the lighted world, deep cosmos, or shadowy interiors find their way into my art. Collectors of my work find resonance with the realms of unseen energies that I am drawn to give presence.
