"Autumn is the second spring when every leaf is a flower." - Albert Camus
This is my second spring. After retiring from a career in higher education administration, I've invested in daily art practice to create a cohesive portfolio expressive of the local environment. Based in Lancaster County, PA, I'm currently exploring water media painting and contemporary drawing with charcoal and ink.
My 2020-2021 portfolio is reflective of daily encounters along regional trails, mainly the Conewago and Lebanon Valley Rail Trails, and en plein air work throughout the county. I'm attracted to the visual textures and natural boundaries within the landscape; I tend to work quickly and expressively. My formal art training in printmaking, specifically the intaglio process, calls me to consider light and shadow and encourages layering and experimental marks.
