Making art for me is storytelling.  I like to share tales of trees and mountains, the sky and the light  which illuminates the land.  Contradiction and contrast fascinate me. The peacefulness of a river belies the constant change of form and the fragility of survival.  My objective is to go beyond representation and capture the reverential spirit of the paths I have taken.
