Horizon 1

Horizon 1

The Horizon Series began when we moved to England in 2005. As it was the first time I had ever lived on an island, I was curious as to what lay beyond the horizons. In addition, I loved the light in that part of the world. The colors seemed to come alive there. It didn't matter if it was sunny or cloudy, the colors exploded all around me.

We lived in The New Forest in Hampshire where ponies and Highland cattle roamed freely. There hedgerows still defined and protected property. Cottages and small English Villages dotted the area. And people took their time as they moved through the days. All of that was very, very different from the Washington, DC Metro Area from where I had moved and have since returned. Maybe it is this difference which sparked these new sensations and wonderings. Southern England was (and I am sure still is) a lovely, lovey place to experience life.

For me, travel and moving does a lot to spur on my creativity.
