Many artists I know love to share the story. Travel inspires many of my works, being in places like Africa or the Redwood Forests, just takes my breath away. I am awed by nature. Nature is everything, all things connect in one way or another. I can sit on a beach or stand in the woods and just listen. Try it sometimes, you will be amazed at what you hear.
I wonder how things came to be, the shapes of seashells, certain animals, why butterflies & birds know where to fly when they have never been there. I record what I see in hopes of capturing that moment in time. I document what is here today not knowing if it will be here tomorrow. I create short stories with my work. Next time you see one of my works, ask me about the story behind it, I will be happy to tell you my tale.
