My creative pursuits keep me energized and foster a spirit of adventure and exploration. As an artist, I want to inspire others, as well as myself, to experience creation in new ways. I find a peace and connection to my Creator through being in and exploring nature in various forms, including the arts. The natural world brings together a vast array of differences in a common structure that benefits all parts, and I feel more complete when experiencing it.
Whether my artwork consists of high realism or expressionistic landscapes, I am participating in the process of seeking new angles and avenues to experience life. My expressionistic watercolor landscapes are an example of combining the large expanse of nature with the excitement and enjoyment of the details that enhance the larger picture. The free flow of the vibrant colors, combined with the spontaneous textures and details created by fibers used in the process, results in an image reflecting the vastness that is filled with details and areas to explore. My desire is that through my artwork others may experience the energy and spirit of growth and adventure that I find in creating it.
