Fundamentally, I am a formalist. I seek to explore seeing by playing with surface and perspective in two dimensions. Texture, shape, color, line, composition have a life of their own. However, mystery and magic are still foremost in creating a good piece.
Subtle icons in my work, influenced by American Indian petroglyphs and pictographs which have enchanted me for over 40 years, are one source of magic. My Metallic Icon Series, a set of paintings that contain highly-textured surfaces, limited palette, strong linear forms and metallic paints, also include these subtle icons.
My paintings are essentially abstract—completely non-objective, sometimes abstractions of landscapes or abstractions incorporating satellite imagery of Earth subjects. I worked for over 20 years as a remote sensing specialist, interpreting satellite imagery for environmental management applications; painting subjects were visible everywhere! My paintings—whether acrylic, encaustic or oil—frequently include mixed media like drawing materials or various found objects.
Most of my prints—photo etchings, linocuts, monotypes, etchings—and photomontage are pictorial, and some integrate mixed media.
