My work reflects the familiar yet fleeting moments of landscape, water and sky. My travels take me to canyons and mountains where I am inspired by the palette of colors and details of the “desert next to the river” landscape. Plants and birds, with all their variations in shape and color, delight me. I am intrigued by patterns found in sand and stone and by chance. My work is about discovery and the translation of experience through the process.
Currently I am working on a "baby bird" series and continuing explorations of the ocean environment.
