My two careers, landscape architecture and fine art, are interwoven in the texture of my life.
Landscape architecture has provided me with a way of combining my interest in nature and the arts, and has enabled my travels around the world in search for beauty and landscape experience.
Painting and drawing, in turn, are like breathing. I always carry an aquarelle block on whatever journey I embark on. Impressions of landscapes—the colors of light in the skies and waters—are captured on the spot, always outdoors, in these travel diaries.
