I’m inspired by nature; holding time in the present to all the effects of the natural world over decades, if not hundreds of years. When I draw branches or paint trees, or photograph my woods, I want to breathe life back into them with a line or a stroke or a unexpected composition. I am always exploring new techniques and bring a desire to have unexpected “chance” experiences with my work.

I created the global traveling art project known as “Peace by Piece” involving thousands of participants creating canvases and writings to express personal statements about peace. I’ve been awarded numerous grants to support the use of art as a transformative force for social change. I design and teach creativity workshops in areas of expression about education, earth awareness, nonviolence, wellness and peace.
