My artwork is an extension of views of nature, humanity and our relationship to Earth. I believe strongly in a positive approach to life and our world, with the understanding that we, as stewards, have the responsibility of providing a better place for the next generation to thrive. I perceive a current emphasis of imagery is on the negative landscape of this world and humanity’s ugly side. My feeling is that, in so many instances, this approach is preaching to the choir. As an alternative, I choose is to focus on the incredible beauty that surrounds us, and in that way encourage people to preserve our beautiful planet.
