Artist's Statement


I have been painting the landscape for over four decades.  I find beauty in weather, plants and light.  Much of my painting is completed out of doors, sometimes in one sitting, a few hours long, en plein air.  I grew up and discovered my love of art in hayfields and antique apple trees on the banks of the Susquehanna River. 


Each year my gardens burst into bloom with fresh colors and textures.  The gardens help to sustain the birds and beasts who live here.  Painting and living in the gardens, pleases and sustains me.  The paintings provide a way for me to share the essential beauty of the land with other humans.
