I believe as an artist that everything we see in the universe is vibratory in its being. Each object vibrates at different rates and it is through our process of realizing these vibrations through color and light that the world appears us. In my art I try to be open to this process and allow nature to speak through me on all levels. I work to capture the essence of a scene using both my inner and outer eye. Most of my representational work includes still-lifes and landscapes en plein air but I always follow inspiration wherever it leads.
As a person who uses art as one form of communication I hope to show that we are kindred spirits with the heart of nature - a heart with which we are truly connected. I find myself impelled to create in my life and share what insights may be gleaned
