“My art has always been, in one way or another, an expression of place. I have adapted the skills acquired through lifetime of plein air painting to myexploration for a language with which to express and symbolize nature in a nonliteral way. My process begins with on-site studies, usually in gouache, which are gradually distilled down to a series of paraphrased expressions of nature. As I am normally juggling studio painting, teaching, gallery life and the usual work-day routines, a dedicated span of focused time to soak in and explore a specific location without interruption would be most welcome.”
