Artist Gallery | Visual/Photography
My brush is guided by a geographer’s mind eye’s, an artist’s skill, and a free spirit. For me, the greatest teacher for landscape painting is the landscape itself. Constantly changing in appearance, it is there always for us to appreciate its attributes and learn from them. For me, landscape painting elicits appreciation of natural processes, reflection on the historical past, awareness of the potentialities of human action embodied in each place and, on occasion, provides a venue for philosophical exploration and emotional release. Personal encounters with “new” landscapes – the interplay between heaven, land, and living creatures – always bring me joy. It is not the place per se, but rather how my mind responds to it in new ways, that enriches my being.
Contemporary and historic landscapes by a geographer/artist reflect the beauty, wonder, spirit and romance of sites/sights around the world captured in ink and watercolour on a variety of papers and canvas during 60+ years of an ongoing painting journey.
