My work is inspired by the environment around me, nature's spirit and the joy of exploration and discovery. I am fascinated by the rhythm, texture and vitality of natural forms. I take liberties with these forms and create new yet related images. I have always been drawn to small pieces of nature. I cannot resist picking up the smooth, dark stone, the piece of weathered bark, or the amazingly delicate little shell. I often find that I have one or more of these treasures in my pocket! I hope that my work projects a calm, contemplative atmosphere. One that encourages the viewer to slow down, take a deep calming breath. I think about connectedness and reflect on a time when humanity held greater respect for the natural rhythms and cycles of the earth and moon.... a time when everyday life was very much influenced by these natural cycles and seasons.
