Painting what matters, Eco-Art collection
Getting outside is good for the soul. Through my artwork, I try to bring the outside in. While I make no attempt to portray realism in plants or animals, I do want my creations to stir emotions and elicit awe in the splendor of nature as I have.
“Living with beautiful objects that pay tribute to the natural world reminds us to slow down and helps us reconnect with nature.”
My goal is to inspire those who see my work to look more carefully at the world around them, to discover beauty in unusual places.”
When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else… Nobody really sees a flower – really – it is so small – we haven’t time – and to see takes time… So I said to myself – I’ll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking time to look at it.”
This manifests my belief that we spend much of our lives seeing without observing.”
I want to raise awareness about protecting and preserving our environment.
Art can serve as a catalyst for healing individuals, society and the environment, my mission is to raise awareness for positive change through art.
To inspire others to strive to achieve a more sustainable, harmonious and healing relationship with Mother Nature.
I believe artists have considerable responsibility as cultural instigators to ask questions, raise issues and challenge assumptions. As a conceptual eco-artist, I use my work as my voice to address our cultural disconnection from nature in order that we may reconsider our relationship to land and resources.
My hope is that my art is a restorative experience for viewers.
