In 2013, after creating mixed media fiber landscapes for 20 years, I began concentrating on painting on canvas, and photography. Inspiration for all my artwork comes from trips to China, East Africa, Russia, Antarctica, and extensive travel throughout North America and Europe. I am drawn to a few subjects in nature that I find perpetually intriguing and my voice is whispering a tribute to the incredible beauty in both the subtle and violent forces of nature, only touched by the hand of humans on rare occasions. I am obsessively drawn to trees, rocks, all forms of water, and animals; I portray these subjects as if they were asking to me to reveal their messages to the world. My paintings and fiber art are dramatic portraits of Earth and I hope to draw the viewers into these scenes to share the exhilaration I feel and to cherish the wonders of the place we call home.
