In this life of mine I’ve worn many hats - educator, landscape architect, Mom, adventurer. I tend to view the world through its visual and emotional connections. There’s so much beauty in those connections. The details become paintings, and take on another level of meaning, of depth. Compositionally, they become whole within themselves.

Elements of texture, edges or color create abstractions that can stop me in my tracks with their beauty. Such basic elements evoke their own visual order and sense, distinct and separate from the context of a larger scene. For me, it’s about slowing down, taking in what’s around me, and reframing it; seeing the dance between the elements so easily missed.

Some people complain that Vineyard winters are too gray, too dull. But I see subtleties within the grays - they almost turn purple, green, or blue. Bringing another level of attention to details that aren’t readily seen, appreciating the complexities of our world – I yearn for that depth.

My favorite day is one when I’m able to wander aimlessly, lose myself in the nooks and crannies of my surroundings. Worn buildings, having lived well, allowing Mother Nature to slowly claim her space again. Beaches, woodlands, and grasslands sharing their quiet abstract art.

It’s common for me to suddenly stop at the sight of a wall, a sidewalk, a subtle shift of sand and rocks. It drives my family crazy, but they’ve learned to walk around me and keep on going. Eventually I’ll catch up.

Entering the Kingdom
The dream of my life
Is to lie down by a slow river
And stare at the light in the trees -
To learn something by being nothing
A little while but the rich
Lens of attention.
