The sculpture titled "Honoring the Root" is testament to the beauty of the life giving "root" Like the tree, we honor our roots because they have been life giving for both body and soul. The Line drawing of the moose became the focal point of an abstract watercolor superimposed over a photo. I found the combination of color texture and line became an exciting new way to express the way I feel about nature.
Line, texture, and color are important elements in my art. I am fascinated by a line sweeping across a surface, the feel of texture alongside a smooth surface, or perhaps how a tiny spot of color looks on a black field. I work with mixed media, finding the juxtaposition of materials a continual source of inspiration.
What I call a great art day is when a visually powerful piece is also a narrative that expresses some aspect of nature. When my work can combine beauty and personal truth, when it touches another person, then I feel I have succeeded.
