"My admiration for nature’s creations and love of artistic expression create a need in me to paint. My wish is for each painting to capture the freedom and vitality of nature in unexpected ways. Color, light, movement, and the brief spaces of silent moments are all dynamic elements I find in nature. Therefore, I work to incorporate each of those components in a way that appears as if one has arrived at a moment in nature where all the elements have come together and time stood still for a breath."
