Artist Statement

When one spends time outdoors observing and interacting with our natural world there are moments that happen when the world around us becomes magical, or extra-beautiful. Nature reveals itself to you. This can be something tiny like seeing a frog embryo developing in a mossy puddle of water. The beginnings of life. Or something huge like gazing out at our solar system far away from the influence of city lights, seeing the stars like you never have before.

It can be something subtle like one trees particular shape and flow. This is when we artists are given a glimpse into the secret geometry of beauty. The more we observe the more we understand. These moments create an emotion and impulse in me that can only be satisfied through the art of painting and drawing.
