I am fascinated by the color, light
patterns, and variety found in nature–
particularly with respect to water lilies.
One can spend a life time and never
come close to capturing the beauty and
tranquility found in the natural world.
I feel blessed to have the time to look
so deeply into the life around me and
hope to share that feeling with you
through my paintings.
