I work at the interface of chaos and control. I make gardens and landscapes, both real and imaginary. I am a visual artist and a landscape architect.

My work begins with a study of gardens and landscapes. I revel in the collision of the exuberance and complexity of disorder with the struggle to create structure and comprehension. I am interested in how places are defined through their presence (how they are defined or marked), through narrative (their stories, histories and interpretations) and through context (how they fit into the bigger world).

The large abstract paintings presented in this show are based on personal memories and meanings of particular gardens and landscapes.
