Artist's Statement
  Capturing a place and time in a painting is a special way to remember where you have been, what you were doing, and who you were with at the time. This collection of pastel paintings is a small travel log exhibit of our four-month stay in Italy. I was able to do many of the paintings while in Italy, either in our apartment or on location. It was great fun to carry my easel and painting supplies through Florence and find locations to paint! Other pieces in the exhibit were painted from photo references upon returning home, allowing me to savor those experiences once again.

While in Italy with my family, I was a faculty co-lead for the UW-Madison Study Abroad program in Florence and enjoyed interacting the 32 students who came with us on the trip. Although much of our time in Italy was spent working (on both teaching and research), we had the opportunity to take a number of weekend trips to visit a variety of places within Italy. In addition to Florence, these paintings represent locations in Val D'Orcia, Marina di Pisa, and Siusi which we visited.

I am working with the Division of Continuing Studies at UW-Madison to create a new summer course for non-engineering majors based on the class I taught while in Italy: Principles of Engineering from the Renaissance to Modern Times.
