I am a landscape architect and
watercolorist. For over 20 years, I have painted in Washington
DC., exhibited in group shows at the Torpedo Factory in
Alexandria, Va. and Strathmore Hall in Bethesda, Md.
light falling upon the landscape, on buildings and people
interests me. I
love color as well because it gives emotion and more
complexity to a painting.
Growing up in Arizona, I was
intrigued by the way light falls on the landscape. In that sun
drenched land, light bounces everywhere playing delightful
patterns on walls and floors.
In Washington, DC light is more diffused but I still am drawn
to the drama of late afternoon light, sharp, clear and
highlighting whatever it touches.
When light falls on the
landscapes or people, it can be viewed as a metaphor for
enlightenment or insight and understanding. These are
qualities that I strive to achieve in life.
