Perhaps spawned by an intense
childhood exploration of nature's small
miracles, I tend to focus on intimate scenes
rather than the big picture--even a vast
landscape must be scrutinized in order to find
its hidden secrets. Iím most drawn to subjects
that are uplifting and reflect a positive
spirit, and I crave the freedom that a large
working surface invites. It is in this wide-open
space that I can best capture my subjects'
energy through dynamic compositions, expressive
brush strokes, and courageous color.
