Throughout my life I have also drawn on paper, both as a preliminary to
other work and as a parallel activity, important in its own right. This two-dimensional work led me back to printmaking. In addition, I had the need to record the landscapes I designed
and I learned the art of panoramic photography. This practical necessity quickly turned to delving into the expressive possibilities of the camera and the computer. My prints begin life
as photographs. Many hours of experimentation and manipulation on the computer result in the final images.
It is the land that has informed all of my work, in whatever
medium. I have tried to reflect it in my sculpture; I have tried to work with it -- and sometimes to heal it -- in my landscape design. With these images I am trying to express its
strength and to explore an understanding of the earth as an active living force, not as a passive stage for human activity. On one level, my images are modest pictures; on another, they
are a heartfelt expression of the physical and spiritual sustenance that the land bestows.
