Artist’s Statement: I am in love and in fact completely smitten by Nature. I find it thrilling when the light dances through a backlit leaf or flower petal or by the radiance of a butterfly wing. Color in a hundred hues vivid or subtle and luminosity move me in the same way some people are moved by a special piece of music beyond words and straight to the heart. Similarly I love the surprises inherent in creating art both in seeing closely and carefully and in the unexpected while applying paint to canvas. I am third generation on my land and have known some particular trees since childhood. Being in the thick of nature daily and being able to see the stars at night I wouldn’t trade for anything. Through my paintings I hope to express the gratitude that I feel for the profound power and beauty of Nature.
