"I love to explore ways to express life force! During a recent visit to the Grand Canyon, I was blown away by the beauty of the rocks in the Trail of Time - they make me feel connected to everything, the past and the future. I use photos of the rocks as inspiration in my new series. The process of oil painting and drawing is an adventure."
"I welcome visitors to my studio - exchanging ideas stimulates my creativity and perhaps theirs. My studio is open by appointment."
