About the Artist
All my work is a meditation on nature whether abstract or realistic. During the pandemic I have turned to nature for comfort and celebration. I have taken flower photographs and created digital composites for the past 11 years in work that complemented my mixed media drawings. In this particular time I have taken advantage of the endless gift of nature that surrounds me. My photographs of flowers and the Southwest Virginia landscape reflect my unceasing awe. I am overwhelmed by the beauty.
