Desert and Sea
For many years, I lived on the west coast, first in the rainy Pacific Northwest, and later in foggy Northern California, where the cool, marine atmosphere shaped my aesthetic and palette. When I moved to Northern New Mexico in 2005, I continued to work from memories and photographs of that lush, verdant environment. It has taken me nearly a decade to recognize and fall in love with the subtle beauty of the high desert, with its vast luminous skies and quiet, earthen palette.
In this body of work I’ve captured the qualities of these two contrasting landscapes.
