Artist Statement
I grew up in thew woods of New Hampshire. As a child I spent most of my time interacting with nature or viewing it through large picture windows from inside the house that my father built. I developed a deep connection with nature here and with self through nature. I am attracted to the details within a landscape and identify emotionally with individual objects and specimen.
