Artists Statement: Whether I am painting landscapes or non-objective abstracts, am fascinated by the edges of things – the way that water meets the shoreline, clouds stand out from the sky, trees and leaves intermingle, hard lines meet soft contours, soft contours blend into other contours, adjacent colors bleed together or stand out in strong contrast. My most realistic landscapes are patterned color and shape — objects, of course, but more than objects; they are sensed relationships. I’ve been influenced by serious and not-so-serious art and artists of many time periods, styles, and media.
