Nature is art in its purest form.  My most exhilarating moments come when I am hiking in the mountain regions of Oregon.  I begin to smell life all around me.  The sage the pine the fir are a living ensemble of scent and of song.  A conifer forest a portrait in green. I absorb it all.  I transfer that exuberance onto my art work.  I hope to share that passion with you in everything I create.
