I paint with dyes and resist on a silk canvas, blending pattern with picture in order to express the essence and energy of the place, or form. The contrast of texture and movement intrigues me, as silk painting’s unique character is both fluid and still.

After living in Europe, 18 years in the Pacific Northwest, and now Texas, I like to accentuate the richness of different landscapes, and wildlife with the merging of color and flow, to illustrate the nature of what is seen and felt. Whether I’m painting landscapes of the US or Europe, or anything else, I hope to be able to convey the joy I experience, in witnessing, experiencing the moment, and share the sense of awe and discovery, wherever I am.
