"I create art in different mediums, about the expression of a place or an idea. I put a label or a word to what I wish to say in my artwork, and then I begin, keeping this expression foremost in mind. My geometric abstracts are rooted in my career as a landscape architect in which I completed many urban public projects in Northern California. My other designs begin from imagination. My artwork focuses on subjects most intimate and familiar to me: cityscapes, landscapes, memory paintings or those inspired by the designs and patterns found in nature. "
