My Philosophy . . .

Enamored of the landscape as subject matter, my reactions can be likened to a dance. The formula for each dance lies in the following symbiosis: the give and take of rythms, the sense of contrast in color shape, tesxture and composition, in response to reality and/or supposition. The ability to work successfully with mixed media has enabled me to achieve a kind of immediacy in my work . . . 

The words of Ralph Waldo Emerson continue to resonate within me:

"What lies behind is and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared with what lies within us."
