For 60 years landscape painting has been my research tool. My brush is guided by a geographer’s mind’s eye, an artist’s skill, and a free spirit. My teacher for landscape painting is the landscape itself. Constantly changing in appearance, it is there always to appreciate its attributes and learn from them. For me, landscape painting elicits appreciation of natural processes, reflection on the past, awareness of the potentialities of human action, and a venue for emotional release. Personal encounters with “new” landscapes – the interplay between humanity, Earth, and Cosmos – 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. I have shared my art through exhibitions in twelve countries and the publication of ten art books.
