Working in the quietude of my studio/home, inspiration is but a few steps from the front door. Encircled by open field as well as elm and mimosa trees, I am never far from the next idea for a painting. Gathered leaves, acorns, grasses and wildflowers become subjects for paintings and their unique characteristics begin to emerge as I arrange them at my drafting table. Each botanical is shaped by its environment wearing the expression of those conditions which enriches the narratives explored in my current body of work. It is God who sets these processes in order, and I am simply a fellow worker with the Lord in bringing his beauty to the world throug my work. While my calling is art my devotion is to the Creator not the creation and to Christ JesusLord and Savior.
