Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures. –Henry Ward Beecher


Welcome to My Art Website

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.

- Thomas Merton

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things but their inward significance.

- Aristotle

To have the sense of creative activity is the great happiness and the grat proof of being alive.

- Matthew Arnold

My artistic challenge is to interpret nature across different cultures and climates. I find inspiration in watching birds, people and animals doing what they naturally do in the places I live and travel, including the Pacific Northwest, Florida, the Caribbean, and other parts of the world.

I enjoy the beauty of plants, flowers, fruit and colorful objects that reflect light. I use watercolor and sumi-e as a way to freely express the essense of what I observe whether it results in representational or more abstract art. My goal is to capture the charm of a warm world in motion.
