Having been an art teacher, woodcarver and a printmaker in my formative art years, I emerged as a painter, awash in color and searching for pattern. While seeking brilliance in color is a worthy goal, pattern in nature is primal - the need to find a glimmer of logic in a vastly complicated, confusing and tumbled landscape. The goal is lofty, but when the quest is conducted with paint and brush, it is a joyously daunting adventure.
 
Color and pattern are everywhere, but the seeing and the interpretation of them are different for each of us. I look for the brilliance and the gaiety of life around me. I try to catch the light and design in all its strangeness and beauty. There is so much joy and adventure to paint in one lifetime and it is fleeting. I have to get back to work.

 

My painting can be seen exclusively at La Posada de Santa Fe in Santa Fe, New Mexico and at Hotel Madeline in Teluride, Colorado.  

The curator for both is Sara Eyestone.  Her contact number is 505-954-9668.
