Views of the Natural World

I am in love with—smitten by—Nature.

I thrill when I see light dancing through a backlit leaf or flower petal, or the radiance of a butterfly wing. Color and luminosity in hundreds of vivid and subtle hues surprise me and move me in the way music moves others—they go beyond words and straight to my heart. Similarly, I love the surprises inherent in creating art, both in looking closely and carefully, and in applying paint to canvas.

I am third generation on my rural, wooded land; I have known particular trees since childhood. Living in the thick of nature daily and seeing the stars at night—I wouldn’t trade those experiences for anything. Through my paintings I hope to express the profound gratitude I feel for the power and beauty of Nature.
