"My paintings explore the abstract nature of this beautiful world, looking at both inner and outer landscape."
"This work expresses elemental interconnections among living things, the surging energy of current events and the poetry and music of light. As I paint, I search for the sense of place that develops quietly over time within a painting. Each painting is also built upon the archeology of previous paintings and memories of the ones that got away."
"Growing up close to New York City allowed me to experience and learn from gardens, woods, museums and cultural performances. I have always made art."
