Today, I am amazed at how nature is so colorful and so graphic. Color is one of the most powerful of elements. Understanding the uses of color is most effective to having a successful composition in design and fine art. At a very young age I began taking daily walks, my imagination was fierce. I still continue these walks. This is when I find peace of mind and this is where I am inspired. My artwork is often created from a part of nature; a simple rock, a splashing wave, a piece of moss on a tree, and a gentle face. My paintings represent the beauty that we often take for granted and simply do not take the time to see. I will forever continue to keep my eyes open, to observe the wonders of nature, and to respect the world we live in.
