Feature Artist Bio
January 31, 2015
"I spend a significant number of days each year outdoors studying and pondering nature, effects of light, atmosphere, weather conditions, seasons, as well as movement caused by light, clouds or a busy street. These moments out of doors are for me, an essential muse.
“I personally believe in a powerful, wise, and loving Creator who made the earth beautiful for our benefit; therefore, I see the beauty and underlying harmony of the landscape as an expression of love towards us. I find great joy and fulfillment in studying nature directly and seeking out the best elements in order to convey these emotions. For me, a successful painting becomes not just a depiction of the physical, but a medium for connecting with our own spiritual natures."
