Artist/Exhibition Statement: 

“Earthly bliss is ephemeral, magical, mysterious, and peacefully reformative within the immutable rising and setting of the sun. Therein lies the spirit in abundant changing wheat fields, the lyrical furrows engraved on earth, the spectrum of foliage, the rhythmic flow of the sky. The dynamic and dramatic elements of nature capture and flirt with my imagination.  Drawing revitalizes my spirit and evolves into a mysterious celebration of life.

The illuminating character of charcoal enhances the divine unpredictability inherent in nature. It inspires us to rejoice in the transitory qualities of nature itself and reveal one's spirit.”
