This butterfly was a gift to me today. The last week or so has had me wondering if anything good was ever going to happen in my life again. So when I noticed the sun shining on my deck this afternoon I thought it was time to treat myself to some rest and fresh air. I noticed three butterflies in my neighbor's lilacs and had to get my camera. Is this a great shot or what. I cheered right up. Nature does that for me.
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
