Sumi-ink and resist on paper
16 x 28 in.

Art is a vehicle for expressing joy and finding oneness with the universe. My vehicle for this route of expression is nature. In the process of exploration, I tap into my intuition, spirituality and sensitivity to daily observations of all that is around me and the feelings that run through me when I am in the natural environment. My approach to art-making is to stay in the moment of each painting session and present my visions with fresh immediacy. I enjoy working with a wide variety of media, approaches, genres, and styles, yet my subject matter typically revolves around a spiritual response to plants. The unifying factor in my work, is a tendency towards rendering small, intimate elements of nature that would otherwise go unnoticed.
