It can be said that artists have always been at the forefront of environmental conservation. We study, record and celebrate the
natural world through our creations. If possible I work directly from life , with the focus on a naturalistic realism that can border on the surreal. I create images that represent ideas and places within my own experience and , through the use of transcendent observation , attempt to evoke the essential spirit of my subjects. While documenting the beauty and variety in nature , I also hope to bring attention to its ephemeral , temporary quality. Well aware of modern trends , I utilize a "low technology - high technique" approach. My artwork is completely hand done ; and materials are prepared in traditional as well as contemporary methods.
