From my home in New Jersey, I could see the skyline of Manhattan. We spent weekends at a small cabin in northern New Jersey near the Appalachian Trail. I often walked alone in the forest where I found escape, safety, and restoration. Now, even in urban areas, I find patches of wilderness.
I make linocuts and large paintings of these scenes using only black and white. From a distance, the images are pictorial. Up close, they are alive with abstract shapes. My hope is that these images will resonate with the memories and experiences of those who see them.
