Artist’s Statement: I’ve always loved beautiful places and beautiful things. There is beauty everywhere if we are open to it. I want to share my vision on paper, not just the appearance of a place, an animal or a flower, but what it feels like to be in that place, looking at those flowers, watching those geese, hiking on the mountain behind our house, experiencing the changing colors of our fruit trees or the cottonwoods along the river.
