"Nature teaches us all that we need to know, if only we would listen. I have always tried to keep my ear to the wind and my eyes on the skies, to look at the world through rose glasses. My journey can be traced through the geography of my art. As the landscapes changed, so did I. From the forests and farmlands of New York, to the mountains of Colorado and the mighty Pacific of the Golden Coast, and everything in between, my constant companion and muse has been the natural world around me. Now that my years of traveling have led me to a quiet life in a sleepy coastal town, I have found the stillness that allows me to create without distraction. And it is here and now that the culmination of everything I've seen pours through me and onto the page".
