  • Gardening Background

  • Biographical Information
    As a passionate gardener, my art is as intricately entwined as the gardens surrounding my studio. Cultivating and tending these gardens is the first stage of creating the art that grows in my studio.

    Flowers represent to me a microcosm of the universe in their cycles of living and loving, families and relationships as well as their quest for survival and eventual senescence and rebirth.

    With a duality of external and internal vision, I invite the viewer to see, larger than life, the beauty and intricacy of flowers and in their boldness I suggest a contemplation of their relevance and ours in the social order of our universe.

    Creating a painting composition and designing a garden are quite similar in concept. The same issues of focus, rhythm, texture, scale, navigation & color are there in each.

    I could never grow just one plant or love just one child.
