I am a photographer, mixed media artist and an incurable
collector. I love to find interesting specimens of nature and
culture. I delight in varied textures, shapes and colors and pick
up and keep everything I find that touches me. All this natural
and cultural debris ultimately finds its way into my art. Although
my art is characterized by color and composition, these small
natural and cultural items seem to give my art an earthly mooring.
In both my art and photography I start with color, focus on composition
and finish with unexpected details.
Ive spent my life teaching Spanish to students
of all ages. Almost every year of my life as a teacher included
at least one trip to somewhere in the world with Spanish influence
and all of my wanderings included collecting. These collections
have grown through the years and add interest, depth and a personal
connection to all of my art.
Since Ive retired Ive had the time to produce art.
Ive focused more on what I love, the details and textures
of nature and the designs of the Spanish cultures. This has helped
me to slow down and really seek out and see color, texture and
interesting design, both natural and manmade, that I love. I hope
my photography and art will inspire my viewers to do the same.
