Art of the Vineyard

Our vineyards, adjoining the Big Sur coastline but far above it, lie not only within the ideal wine area but also the wondrous beauty of a tectonic landscape.

When I realized my art studio was built on the crater of one of our three volcanoes, with brush firmly in hand, there was a profound change in how I observed and thought about the world around me and especially the earth beneath…in all its multi-hued magnificence and mystery.

Deep influences from Fauvism to Expressionism and beyond waned as my abstract paintings began to reflect the color explosion and dynamics of irrepressible nature.  I then was compelled to revitalize my earlier landscape days and create a series of images that helped to pictorialize the aesthetics and awe of volcanic transformations. Wine is terroir; art is terroir!

The Past


Timeless Terrain.
Landscape beyond the eons, beyond the universe as known.  Depictions of  this and every moment.
Envisioning the earth in all dimensions and hues. Confronting the destiny of creation throughout the ages.
