“My inspiration comes primarily from the great beauty found in nature.... nothing is more inspiring than a beautiful landscape in which one feels peace and tranquility. In my abstract painting I create a balance between composition and a feeling of spontaneous flow found in nature.....many of my paintings come from imagination. These images that I want to see on canvas and bringing them to life keeps me painting."
