Part of the Geometrees Series, which started as a mental exercise to merge both bodies of work. Elements similar to Hunderwasser, Klimt, Kandisky, and Klee, who all were also working toward abstraction. This series has yielded broader notions of the abstracted landscape, but I continue with the geometrees because they are so methodical and meditative.

"I dropped my one applied art class in college because the supplies were too expensive. I took an art history minor, but never got past Europe in the 1500's in my studies.

A decade later, I began working for an artist/my future husband in an administrative role. Initially I immersed myself in contemporary art through museums, galleries, art libraries, journals, the internet and art fairs.

My own artwork began as a primitivist experiment. Instead of a curriculum or lessons, I relied on intuition. Techniques I could have learned in class in a day took months to discover. But a unique personal style developed because I never heard 'you can't do that.'

While learning technique, I focused on landscapes without knowing why. Eventually I realized they were my escape from the complications of the man-made world. The abstracts are an logical extension of that escapism.

Art's value ranges from decorative to transcendental. I'm grateful for people who stop to take comfort in my work."
