Artist Statement

 

“A walk in a garden bursting with blooms, a stroll down a winding path in the woods, a bouquet of fresh-cut flowers.  These are the impressions I want the viewer to feel and see. When I begin a new piece, I think of an impression or feeling that I want to bring forth in my work.  Using Alcohol Inks & Mixed Media, I am able to give the impression of nature without detail, allowing viewers to use their imaginations to see what appears to them."
