Artist Statement:
From my earliest childhood I was always drawn to the deep intrinsic beauty of the natural world that surrounds us. In my earlier artistic years, my concentration was always on relief carving. Now I try to capture that natural spirit in every medium I can, from intricate carving, to black and white drawing, to pure lush oil color. There's so much beauty out there. Hopefully my work will encourage viewers to slow down and look again at what they walk or drive past every day without a second glance.
