The last two years of worldwide events have altered the way I look at my work. My landscapes on canvas I consider preservations of a beautiful and threatened planet. They are meant to impart a sense of place so the viewer gets immersed in being there. They are also meant to impart the serenity beauty can bring. I am more mindful than ever before how fleeting that can all be, therefore the sense of preservation the canvas brings.
The landscape is central to my work and my being. It continues to inspire two different processes. In my digital abstracts, I use elements of the environment with constructed objects. They are put together so that the inorganic and the organic coalesce. The complexities meet and context is re-created. I intend to express my sense of change and chaos on a beautiful planet.
