Nature entrances me. The harmony
and patterns, symmetry, geometry,
vibrant and soothing colors, the
protective camoflage for flora and
fauna, healing energies, medicinal
properties, the intricate beauty...

Everything on our planet shares a core
energy, a vital life force that animates
and supports all growth and renewal.
In nature, when this energy is balanced
and uninhibited by human interference,
the flow is smooth, perfection exists.
When I am truly in touch with nature,
the feelings I experience are incredibly
magical, full of wonder and joy!

My art is about the experiences I have
with nature. It's my voice to share
these stories and expand the awareness
of our incredibly awesome and beneficent
planet... our Mother Earth.

I was first aware of Nature Spirits as a child playing in
the woods and streams of my family home in the
Catskill Mountains of New York. Then, in the early
70's I read about the existence of nature spirits at the
Findhorn gardens in Scotland. Fascinated by their
stories, I began to experiment with communicating
with the devas while gardening and hiking in
Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. I read voraciously and
learned that nature spirits have existed throughout
time in almost every culture around the world.
My art is created using a combination of photography
and painting. I enhance and subdue the balance of
light, contrast and colors to work an image into the
most authentic expression of my experience.
