The Artist Says:


The experience of nature as a healing force is what I strive to convey in my paintings.Sensitively rendered landscapes capture much more than a physical location and  provide a path to serenity while being a reminder of the harmony and balance available to those who will heed her call.Pastels and Oils are my companions on this journey.
