Notes from a collector:


Five of your mezzotints and lithographs have been the companions of our solitude and imagination for the past 30 years. The carefully structured landscapes free of human figures offers complexity through simplification in the tradition of Sheeler, Hopper, and Wyeth. Without the distraction of the figure, we see the formality of the given, a gift not tainted by the desire or need to objectify. Your landscapes and buildings are abstract in the best sense, revealing the essence of things. Freed from being representational, they shimmer and vibrate with mystery and wonder.

You are an inspiration for any artist. Each time we pass your prints on our walls at home we discover something new. They have enhanced the contemplative serenity of our lives as writers.

Thank you for being faithful to your vision in the face of the au courant and commodified.
