"Growing things, like flowers and trees, are important to me."

Two Trees - Acrylic on paper 12 x 16 in.

"I enjoy painting in the mosaic style. I began painting late in life under the guidance of Lorna Ritz, who helped me record what I saw in the hills and orchards of western Massachusetts. Most of my works at this stage were landscapes drawn with oil pastels. After moving to Roanoke, Virginia, I painted oils but also worked on mosaics, and slowly a painting style evolved that also expressed the spirit of mosaic. Though my paintings are grounded in the natural world, they use images composed of forms with clear-cut edges. I am most interested in trees, still lifes, flower gardens, and weeds and shrubs of all descriptions, which to me express the beauty of this world. Some of my creations are also abstract works."
