concept of earthwork art summons images of soil, wood, water, rock
formations and other tangible materials. The greater focus within my
art experience is nature's process and the invisible forces at work on
our planet. Nature is my collaborator and as such, makes its every
influence known. I am an ecosystem artist developing each 2D and 3D
painting in seasonal conditions of high heat and extreme cold, at
various levels of humidity, to experience the power of natural elements
in response to the materials I lay upon the canvas and elsewhere.

Nature is THE great creator and as Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "It is a wise person who follows its lead."
The business card I offer people to choose from is made in my garden studio. One side of the card in not affected by Nature and the other side that is glued to it is! Just as no two snow flakes can be alike, each card is an original work of art. Simply put: I ride Nature's Coattails. Nature makes originals of everything it touches. For me, what distinguishes this generation with 20th Century art is that one finds themselves in their rightful place as a part of and not the center of the universe; preferring to say more holistically - Look what I made with Nature!
