With a studio that looks directly onto a nature preserve and river, I can't help but be inspired! What a blessing!!! Some part of me has been awakened by the beauty of creation I find in these beautiful parklands and waterways. The beauty of the changing seasons of the landscape is captivating – it so strongly complements the rhythms of our lives. A walk through this terrain offers a place to search one’s soul and focus on all that is bigger than us. The interplay with nature, sharing a space with the wildlife and natural gardens, re-calibrates and resets what I innately know as truth. You can find this anywhere, really, just allow yourself to look.
The organic nature of oil paint is perfect for this exploration. Large piles of it, like slippery, muddy, earth, complete my experience and complement the interpretation of the rivers and wetlands I so adore.
