I draw inspiration from the beauty and mystery of the natural world, the change of seasons and life cycles influence all of my work. As an artist, I am interested in looking at and representing that which surrounds me. The landscapes, in its many forms, stimulate the senses, the smell, sight and hearing. What attracts me to a subject matter might come through one or more of these senses. Several years ago, I started to paint images of various bodies of water and the plant life that accompanies it. This evolved into a study of local grasses, both native and invasive species. The grasses became visual walls and screens because of the lushness of their growth in certain years. What continues to interest me is that these plants and grasses invite the viewer to look closely and to observe shape, color, smell and the light play on them. I revisit subject matter and places regularly, to view them from new perspectives. As I change, so do they.
