"My paintings speak to the undeniable link betweenhealthy, natural systems and human well-being.
They reflect the exhilaration and renewal I feel when I experience the essence of the natural
world- its beauty, its diversity and the ever changing dramas that are played out in changing
seasons, weather and light. I strive to paint the vibrancy, the freshness, the calm, the excitement,
the awe and the spiritual essence of the world I see."
