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.

  1. You have definitely captured the lines of city buildings and the shimmering sunlight. What surprised me is the solid deep blue with a single line of small white windows. It takes a busy piece and gives the eyes a place to rest – a little shade from the noise and glare.


    1. Thank you! Your feedback is always good for me to hear! I punched up the contrast and sharpness for the blog viewing. When I gave a talk last week, some people told me that they really couldn’t see much detail such as stitching, and I thought it may be a good idea to make sure it’s more visible but I noticed that it also tends to bump up the busy level as well. In the real world it’s somewhat softer.
