Each location I paint is a very special place to me.  Lake Michigan and the surrounding landscapes have a very positive and powerful energy for me.  I observe and am curious about the natural landscape and all it’s magnificence.  The Creators hand is evident everywhere in nature.  From the splendor of a bud of a new leaf to the fallen tree in a forest arranged with such beauty.


In my latest work I combine my strong interest in nature, watercolor painting, handmade textured papers and found objects of the landscape.  Integrating spiritual messages from our spiritual teachers that resonate with me.  I hope that this work will engage the viewer to reflect on the world slightly different.
