My inspiration is nature in its simplicity. Exposure to nature makes you feel better emotionally as well as physically. I try to replicate this feeling in my artwork using watercolor realism to capture the joy and peacefulness of my surroundings. From the native birds to the expanse of the ocean, I want the viewers to feel the therapeutic power of nature. As Anne Frank once said “I firmly believe that nature brings solace to all troubles.”
Over the past 40 years, my biggest fulfillment has been in the teaching of others. I firmly believe in the importance of creativity. Seeing the enthusiasm in my students and seeing the power of healing through art has been truly rewarding.
