MY PHILOSOPHY

Language Of Vision

Critics have argued that art can be described but not defined. When I am asked to describe my work I am always tempted to quote a line from a poem by T.S. Ellot, "oh, do not ask what is it, let us go and make our visit." This is what I believe makes art so enjoying - everyone will experience it differently.

THE NORTHWEST

Landscape Paintings

From my earliest recollection, the landscape was a source of wonder. Initially my quest was for control of media to make paintings of things as they are in nature - especially the wide expanses of the West and Northwest. Being surrounded by them all my life, I was primarily interested in capturing and illustrating those scenes
