ALL ABOUT ART

“WATER STUDIES” Collection
ARTIST STATEMENT

WATER, WATER…322_Swimming RS wb

This is where we live,
This is why we live,
The power and the beauty
of the water that surrounds us,
And falls from the sky,
Is the essence of our existence.

It makes us, who we are,
And what we do,
Destined from those before us,
Who raised us and taught us,
To cherish the water.

We must preserve our water heritage,
Which nourishes our lives,
Our livelihood,
And our souls.

“FLORAL STUDIES” Collection
ARTIST STATEMENT

299 Hydrangeas In Blue Vase wbHave you ever given or received a gift of flowers?  For most people, it’s rather an emotional experience.

I believe flowers are symbolic for many “opposites”: 
New life…lost life
Success…disappointment
New love…lost love
Hellos…goodbyes. 

Flowers foster memories from the first dandelion picked by a toddler and handed to someone special, to the bouquet caught at the wedding, to the bouquet miraculously appearing in the hospital room, to the corsage pinned on the party dress, to the flower left as a final wish for peace.

I create flowers in my art with deep connection, emotion, and care.
