The natural world is my inspiration. Every time I begin a painting I am eager to discover what happens when blue and red are mixed together. I anticipate the swallows each spring as they swoop through the air on the first day of their migratory return. I observe and paint the garden teeming with the diversity of life. I am still making discoveries about interpreting plants and animals through paint and color, a process that is continually evolving.

I love gardening, hiking and bird watching, which are strongly evidenced in the bird artworks. While the conservation of wildlife habitat is very important to me, these artworks are not intended as political statements.
