ShelbyInspiration for these acrylic paintings grew out of several years commuting between the Bay Area and Sacramento. I was struck by the great variety of ways the natural landscape – especially the beautiful undulating hills – had been decorated and manipulated by human occupation over the years. I was also aware that many people bemoaned the intrusion of power lines or microwave relay towers into the “pristine” natural landscape.

I have always found a beauty in these commanding structures of modern technology, and began photographing them, and creating sketches from the photos, in 1999. The goal: to reveal the beauty of California’s built landscape.

Recently I have had the privilege andopportunity to share some of this work with my local community, exhibiting as a member of Arts of Point Richmond.

Over the years my subject has expanded from “things on hills” to whatever view of the California landscape catches my eye. No matter how I try to move on to other subjects, my passion and fascination with the view through the windshield remains unabated.
