“Since I was a child I have reveled in the magic and majesty of nature. It is my experience that the vibrant beauty in nature is our own Self delightfully expressed in myriad, wonderous forms. What we are appreciating is our own divine nature, as we are inextricably connected to all that is. I have followed this mysterious connection through my studies of aesthetics, quantum physics, and ancient eastern and native American wisdoms. It is my hope that my artwork might spark a reverence for the sacredness in nature, and thus the sacredness of our own selves.”
