Land Dream Paintings

Abstract paintings of the landscapes in my heart and mind

I grew up immersed in Southern Arizona's wondrous landscape, the beautiful Sonoran Desert. The influence of that desert's color and vastness, combined with my early travels around the world, helped me understand that I innately visualize my surroundings, natural or man-made, in terms of shapes, colors and compositions. Intense light and clear creosote-scented air, sharp-shaped mountains of blues, greens and purples, expansive sky with audacious sunsets, and the calming quiet of nature, together create this majestic environment. Walking in this landscape invites stillness, mindfulness and awe. Saturated colors, iridescent paint and metallic leaf allow me to express my visceral connection to the Sonoran Desert and to the wild essence of life.
