“My paintings reveal the beauty of nature and the devastating effects of climate collapse. I depict the symbiotic relationship between habitat, plant and animal life, making visible an evolving landscape of color and distinct geometric form. My paintings explore the impact of ecological issues. I put a face on the beauty of land and it’s creatures. I study the shades of color, the living light linking roots to plants, plankton to sea. I dream inside the things I make. The ineffable secret is within me and in the forest of songbirds where I work with a bird-bander. Last summer, I held a female Ruby-throated Hummingbird that had flown into a net in the Sourland Mountains of New Jersey. I let it go and watched it fly high up to a lichen-covered nest on the branch of an Ash tree. Nature has a wonderful balance. What we see is only the the outer margin of an intricate web. My paintings reflect in-depth feelings and symbols of shifting change happening before our eyes.”
