Artist Statement
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 and with self through nature. I am attracted to the details within a landscape and identify emotionally with individual objects and specimen. Through the relationship with my son I reconnect to my inner child and in sharing my
observations of the world each day with him I hope that he learns empathy and develops a sense of wonder.
