Growing up in the Catskill Mountains on the banks of the Hudson River, from a young age I gained a strong connection to the contours of the land and the rhythms of nature.
As a child I spent summers on a farm in Southwestern Massachusetts where domestic animals, horses especially, captured my young imagination, embedding in my psyche images of majestic size and graceful beauty.
These early images, coupled with a love of music and dance, developed subconsciously over the years, giving rise to colorful, mysterious paintings of human figures and animals intertwined in the dance of life.
I have sometimes seen in the gaze of a horse, the inhuman beauty of a world from before the event of mankind.
