Artist Statement:

My inspiration is the planet Earth, herself. Its 'infinite variety of life and beauty permeates my consciousness. Beyond what our senses can reveal, I find peace and connection in spirituality. Experiencing a lifetime journey of visual and physical relationship to Earth, I am aware of the great patternings of land and sea.  It is the very energy, the power, and the exquisite beauty of life in its' multitude of diversions that nourishes my soul and urges my creative expression.
