Artist Statement: 

I am a backyard naturalist who keeps a pair of binoculars and a notebook by my chair so I can record the happenings in the backyard and fields of my family homestead.  I am drawn to study and explore the shapes, colors and textures of the natural world.  My art is filled with images of birds, flowers, rock formations and landscapes.  I draw inspiration from my collection of leaves, sticks, fallen eggs, nests and feathers, stones, bones and fossils.  I find such beauty in their delicateness.  Whether I am working with acrylics, collage or monotype, the techniques of layering and over glazing from my decorative painting background remain a major influence in my work.  Each layer adds depth and richness to the work.  Although I begin with a sketch each piece evolves as the layers are added.  I love the surprises that occur as each unfolds a new piece of the story and exposes a little of the previous one.  It is such an exciting moment when the last layer is unveiled and you know it is perfect!
