My work is a meditation which begins from my experience of nature. I want people who look at my work to experience the spirtual rejuvenation I experience when I am in exquisitely beautiful areas. Life pounds you and tempers you in its fire; it gives you a bendable strengh that is amazing. You have to have this to keep painting. I have shown my work for twenty years, each year at least one new show. I usually paint a new series for every show that I am in. My work is still emerging. I think that one is always emerging as an artist.
