"Some of the interests that motivate me to paint are also found in the art of garden making. I have spent years working in gardens as a means of support and, at times, as a substitute for painting. The borrowed landscape concept is particularly relevant to the work I am producing. The imagery and experience of the time I have spent in gardens unexpectedly found its way into the paintings. I realized I was pairing fragments of intimate details of gardens with several different views and often a distant, smaller fragment of landscape. The mosaic-like building of these compositions developed naturally from this idea and from an enduring interest in collage. I see the borrowed landscape concept as a beautiful metaphor for the self and the personalizing of the world at large into one’s own private world."
