My 'ice paintings' resulted from trips to the Arctic and Antarctic in 1989 and 1993 during which I came to appreciate the multi-faceted beauty and emotional power of ice.

Ice symbolizes both the permanence and impermanence of our collective past, present and future. Whether still, melting or advancing, its effect can be both reassuring and ominous.
