“Our journey on this planet is brief and the beauty around us is limitless,” she notes. “Capturing a few fleeting moments of beauty on canvases is what motivates me to paint. While outside, I spend hours as a witness to nature’s elements—her gift of light, birth, death, color, and moods. As an artist, I'm challenged to translate those moments to a canvas….spending hours contemplating light, shadow, smells, temperature and energy and how that translates to an artistic composition. I'm schooled everyday by nature and grateful for the wealth of knowledge and primitive beauty she brings to me daily”
