My Inspiration:

The natural world is my ideal subject—it has a universal calming effect and provides unlimited evidence of expert design. Artmaking is a wonderfully effective method for detaching from the stress of life and quieting the mind through intense focus on the process. It is amazing how simple marks made on a blank piece of paper can evoke memories, smells, and sensations when browsing through filled sketchbooks and completed paintings years later. Having something tangible to share with the world is an extra reward.
