Autumn in New England never loses its appeal.  The natural wonder of leaves turning color is a spectacular event we are blessed to partake in annually. So much of my art is nature inspired, so we tramped off to Harvard MA, about 60 miles or so from home and spent much of the day at Fruitland, a historic piece of land that was once the hopeful beginning of the transcendentalist movement and the preserved communal home, initially established by Bronson Alcott and Charles Lane in 1843.  If ever you get to MA it’s a wonderful place to visit.

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
