Perhaps being born in Patton, PA, a country town began my love of nature. As a young child I fondly remember walks in the woods and surrounding mountains. There has always been a need to express and share the experience I felt within my soul of nature's beauty and serenity. Nature has beckoned me continuously throughout my life to take a walk with her. Every painting is an experience of life, part of the journey. For me nature is an inexhaustible source of inspiration. Her sounds and moods strike a chord in my heart and in my spirit. One that I seek out, feel at peace with and be inspired by forever. So, yesterday, today and always while on my journey through life, with a whispered prayer and gratitude, I aspire to capture the spirit, serenity and beauty with the hope that through my paintings, the viewer's spirit will experience a tranquil uplifting if even for a few moments in time. I invite you to take a walk with nature and join me on that journey.
