"Trees and vines are an endless source of fascination for me. Their branches can be complicated and messy, yet they remain elegant, like the frozen movements of a dance. I paint the birds around me. In Vermont, birds are jewels, shimmering amidst the gray branches, floating on blue-gray water, or hidden in the dense greenery. In the South, they are large and flamboyant and everywhere. I am know as a watercolorist, but I also paint in oils and acrylics. I strive for a sense of mysetery, sometimes even surrealism, in my work.
