ARTIST STATEMENT

With each work being an intimate record of heart, mind and soul,

I create Paintings & Drawings that reflect my love for

the power of gentle nature.

I am drawn to the purity, harmony and order of divine nature

and am driven by my sensibilites of the calm, the sound, and the tender.

My visual language draws from nature’s design, graphic and

interior design and Modern and Renaissance Masters.
