Learning to pay attention and appreciate the details and nuances of the natural world is possibly the most important thing I have learned as an artist. It is also a never-ending lesson. I studied the complex processes that are involved in making art while getting a BFA in printmaking at Beaver College (now Arcadia University) in Philadelphia. Later, developing a passion for painting, I found myself focusing on close-ups and details. Gradually my images have become more and more abstract as I combine the visual world and my inner response to it. It is the universal quality of the landscape that I am interested in: the line and shapes that repeat in nature and create an intense and personal response.
