My art mostly evolves around land, trees, and light — that is where I find centering. Having a strong bond with nature, I try to protect the environment and I garden organically. In 1995, after many years of painting abstractly, land imagery emerged in an orchard painting titled ‘Healing Life’. Today, the imagery I create is spontaneous
depicting feeling, quality of light, air, wind and movement. I use soft-pastel drawing, oil
and gouache painting, and relief printing. Recording my observations and expressing
myself through hand tools and color is integral to my life. This process is about working
through chaos to calm. I do know that new understanding awakens.
