A great collector said that underneath any American abstraction, you’ll find a landscape. These abstractions come out of light and landscape. I’m inspired by the horizons and seas I’ve moved into, and that have moved into me. I lived in the Mediterranean for years, and California for 20–watching the light play off the landscape and ocean. The images I make are as much the result of building as of seeing. The horizon lines make expanses like skies meeting seas or fields. I like to think they inspire dreaming: Light resonating like burning bushes…deep, bright, ethereal. For me, making art affirms light and dark, the senses, and Dreaming. I have been told that my paintings are like Buddhist thangkas - a painted or embroidered Buddhist teaching tool.
