Unlike many artists I didn't begin consistently making images until my mid 30's. The two dimensional surface fascinated me. I started with watercolors, a natural choice of medium in the watery Pacific Northwest. While living in Seattle I developed a language of image-making that has stayed with me since.
When I moved to the mountains of northern New Mexico in 2007, my world and my artwork opened up in ways I never imagined. Here is a land of high mountain air, abundant sun, striking visual landscape and strong cultural influences. Immediately my colors became bold. My surrounding environment, under a brilliant sky, surrounded by untold natural beauty, sustains plants and animals and the dance of their inter-relationships that inform the works that I now create.
