The lines within these paintings are like the lines of a musical composition, or lines of poetry. I am telling my story line by line,

a story of the beauty I saw in a particular place and time. The story can be read left to right, top to bottom; or seen as a whole.

There is a regular rhythm and repetition in the lines of a musical

composition and in classical poetry, and the even lines and the matching size of the sections in my paintings feel just right to me

for telling my story in both a modern and formalized kind of way.

I also enjoy exploring the close relationship between different plants, and sometimes the insects and birds that inhabit them. The new compositions that result are fascinating and compelling to me.
