About the Art
I pursue two interests in my painting: landscape and color.
There is much landscape we pass by worthy of closer looking. My paintings focus on this. The Missisquoi Series focuses on the browns and ochres that mark the transitions between winter and spring, fall and winter. To me these seem times for reflection quiet, subdued in which an unassuming nature appears between the colors of deep summer, and the naked starkness of northern winters.
My weaving centers on color and a love of abstraction that has grown out of a professional lifet as a graphic designer.
Primary pastels are Sennelier, Unison, Diane Townsend, and Gordan Beçin. Surfaces are Sennelier's Pastel Card and Art Spectrum Colourfix.
Primary threads are carpet warp, (especially Bockens Bomullsgarn), and chenille.
