“I am inspired by landscapes that make me catch my breath. My paintings are not just a product of what I see. They are what I see transformed by my imagination and memories. They may at times have a story hidden in them. Sometimes I recognize the story as I am working on the piece. It is the beauty and sacredness of the earth captured on an emotional level. Water, mist and mountains continually intrigue me—the mountains of the Berkshires, the Hudson Valley, Lake George and Kyoto.” “Color is what drives me and delights me. My process is meditative. Experimenting with layers of many colors enables me to explore, to play, and to experience wonder. These pastel paintings, inspired by images gathered out-of-doors, are completed in my studio. It most pleases me to create intuitively something I had not quite expected. I find the process to be a spiritual journey, a mystery. At the heart of it all is discovery.”
