Drawings & Paintings Inspired by Nature, Imbued with Spirit


   My representational still life drawings and oil paintings depict organic form and found natural objects in a sensuous, yet reverential way.  I strive to elevate these common place subjects to a higher visual and emotional plane.

   In painting landscapes, I am moved by the configuration of the land, it’s suggestion of figurative form and by the quality of light and shadow which creates a particular mood.  In leading the viewer into the landscape, a pathway is suggested, a metaphor for our life’s journey.  Though capturing a sense of place is important, I allow my spiritual connection with the subject to shine forth.
