"For the past few years, my work has been centered on interpretation of the landscape. Whether urban or pastoral scene, I love sharing sketches of the places I have visited as well as places I have lived. Since moving to Chicago, I am fortunate to have the Art Institute of Chicago only a block away from my home and studio. I visit the museum regularly and have been inspired by the deconstructed landscapes of John Marin, the layered texture of Robert Rauschenberg, the push/pull composition of Hans Hoffman, and the gestural marks of Joan Mitchell. I have also waded through the fields and streams of colorists Van Gogh, Matisse, and Monet. I have often been called a colorist and consider that one of the best compliments I could get. Color functions on so many levels. It can be sensuous, mysterious, explosive or theoretical. It can be perceptual and realistic. The endless possibilities are what bring me back to my drawing table continuing my explorations of color, line and texture."
