Nature has always been the greatest inspiration for my drawings. The majestic color combinations and designs found in feathers, flowers, sunsets, clouds, and other phenomena of the natural world create a treasure trove of possible compositions. Individual feathers are very intriguing to me. The colors and patterns on each feather are unique. Flaws, acquired in daily life, add character.  Centers of flowers are often composed of complex patterns that become focal points of my work. I like to emphasize the unobtrusive parts in nature. I believe that we are stewards of this earth and only temporary visitors and my work is the diary of my life.
