From the ArtistMy art choices and world views have been inspired by travel. Through travel, I seek influences, cultural centers, energies, new terrain, and the power of both the spoken and unspoken. The magic of the southwestern United States, Brazil, Haiti, and West Africa has penetrated my work. Southern California, my home for 30 years, has also had an indelible impact, and the colors and rhythms of the Pacific Rim continue to infiltrate.
Primarily an abstract artist, I create in a variety of media: bamboo, wood, paper, and metal. Texture, in the form of layered color and burned-patterning, is a hallmark of my work.
