Artist Statement:

Painting for me, like life, is constant movement, constant change.  The creation process is cathartic, allowing my emotions to spill out onto the glass as a release. Creating art equals happiness for me.  As a child, nothing pleased me more than stealing away with my sketchbook and pencils and drawing the plants, animals and landscapes of our family farm.  To this day, I continue to be in awe of and inspired by the powerful mechanisms and cycles of nature.  Nature is inherently optimistic and resilient in its intricate patterns.  It is my hope that each piece will convey the feelings of joy, light, and peace … and shape new pathways of connection and discovery in the beholder.
