My art is always in transition. It has evolved from representational to an intuitive abstraction of nature. My relationship to nature is central to my creativity. I am most inspired by creating work with a gestural, expressive line and intuitive color choice. My work is not an observational record but contains elements of an emotional experience in nature. I am drawn to shadows and reflections of light. My ultimate goal is to create a richly textured pastel painting with beauty and depth that reflects the mystery and spirit of the natural world.

Pastel is a very natural medium for me. By nature, I am someone who loves to draw. Pastels have allowed me to combine my love of drawing with painting. I love the immediacy, vividness and purity of pastels. My paintings are created on a textured surface such as sanded paper or paper that has been coated with an archival ground. Pastels are layered after an initial under painting on the textured surface.
