Artist Statement

Memories, time and space as inner visions – what I think I remember, what I have recreated, what I am inspired to see, all jumbled into landscapes of the mind. The serendipity of the elusive and intriguing, of a presence somewhere, someplace, only for the moment then gone. They are my inspirations to paint.


We treat each of our patients as part of the family at Atlantic Highlands Animal Hospital. We offer top-quality surgical and dental treatments for cats and dogs. For the best pet care in the Atlantic Highlands, NJ, call us at (732) 291-4400.

Extracted, defined, delineated, created – shapes, colors, tangible evidence of memories.  Sometimes figures and forms emerge, in a stream of consciousness kind of way. Later on, when I look again, they lead the way.

I love to explore how edges come together, how colors and light spill and flow,  how the ephemeral nature of shadows, sun, snow and sand glitter then disappear.

This collection of experiments in oil with cold wax, combining my love of texture, color, and nature, reflects new explorations in illuminating my mind scapes.
