The work documents how I finally emerged from the pandemic. As the lockdown began, I started to be conscious that my view of house and home was central to my frame of mind. I saw the space I was living in with new eyes. I wanted it to be a sanctuary from uncertainty. The world’s events had knocked me from my foundation.
Slowly, though, I began to realize that uncertainty is something that I am familiar with, something that I had embraced years ago when I started to explore abstraction in my art. Uncertainty starts all my paintings, allowing the materials, colors, lines, and shapes to dictate to me what they will become.

I let go and begin: Here, out of the unspecified longing, emerges the outlines of a window; there, appears a horizon line with distant structures upon it.  And throughout, beneath undulating energy, emerges color, with blankness giving way to possibility and grief to a feeling that I am, in a moment born of uncertainty, both home and alive.

About the artist
My work reflects my background being from the Midwest and having a degree and career as a Landscape Architect. In 1993 I left my work as a park planner to begin an artistic career in earnest.

I initially worked in watercolor going from recognizable landscape painting to becoming increasingly abstract as I began to explore both subjects and mediums. I showed my work all over the Midwest and East coast in the outdoor art show circuit for 10 years. With the contacts I made doing these art shows, I was hired to do numerous commissions for offices, hotels, and private collectors. I started working with encaustic – painting with pigmented beeswax – in 2012 and today I work in my studio at my home in the Hampden neighborhood in Baltimore.
