A career of artist and landscape designer, naturally has offered me a chance to see hundreds of gardens, parks and homes. Here are paintings of scenes that inspired me by their vitality and a wish that this vitality be recorded. Maybe that vitality will resonate with viewers; I hope so.
In my work the natural world meets architecture and design, counteracting each other, taming the wildness, providing structure and organization, providing rest and joy.
Water, whether as a salty background for a garden or in a vase, offers reflection, renewal and refreshment, for my passion for a tropical palette. Attention to the design of flowers continues to amaze and enliven me and always welcomes me home.
