Artist’s Statement

“When we are moved by intangible beauty in our natural world, there is something in us that needs expression beyond everyday language. It doesn’t go away; it must find its way out. A visual response is my ‘way out.’ Line, value, color become my language. Landscape is the genre that makes me most happy and fulfilled.”
