Poppies # 1: California Dreaming, 19.25 x 16.75 inches - detail

It seems like it all began with the poppies. I remember driving through the hills of what became Silicon Valley and seeing the golden poppies. 

​

Today those memories make playful images. Maybe they keep me playful. I keep returning to them, just as I return to the trees. 

​

What’s new is that the work has taken on a more abstract and minimalist direction - one I did not see coming, but one that seems ready to stay.

​

I work with cotton, silk and linen both commercial and my own painted materials, sometimes screened and stamped.
