While I do many things in spite of my low vision, I feel that my art is a by-product of it. Order, Placement and Detail are necessary components in my work as well as in my everyday life. Art should extend beyond the frame and into the 3-dimensional environment. Interior colors are carefully chosen and objects are arranged for optimum viewing pleasure. Outside the house is equally important. A sense of overall design must always be considered when addressing egress, planting, and season maintenance. My studio is everywhere I am.
The bulk of my private work deals with a lifelong interest in the rural landscape. I am taken in by the different atmospheres, the random patterns and colors. Old buildings, vehicles, and other objects of human existence left to the environment seem to be telling their stories: where they’ve been, what they’ve done, and what they are doing now, as they settle in for the long haul, taking on more and more the character of their surroundings- the harsh, beautiful truth.
