I have been painting landscapes all of my life. There is something about the shape of the land, how it is adorned with vegetation, and how it reflects and responds to the sky, that continues to intrigue and speak to me. I took a 15-year hiatus from painting, and have recently returned. During that time away, I focused all my energy on composing music. Most of my musical works seem to have a landscape quality, so I never really abandoned my deep love of, expression of, and reverence for the land.
I love using the brilliant and vibrant colors of pastel; I like to do smaller paintings in gouache and ink as well.
