ARTIST STATEMENT:

I believe everything on our planet shares a core energy, a vital life force
that animates and supports all growth and renewal. In nature, when this
energy is balanced and uninhibited by human interference, the flow is
smooth, perfection exists.
When I am truly in touch with nature, the feelings that I experience are
incredibly magical, full of wonder and joy! I create the nature and plant
spirit images to share these feelings, and hopefully to evoke similar
feelings in viewers and instill a greater respect for the immense value of
our natural environment.

My visions of the nature energies evolved over many years of personal
experience. I was first aware of them as a child playing in the woods and
streams of my family home in the Catskill Mountains of New York. In the
early 70's I read about the existence of nature spirits at the Findhorn
gardens in Scotland. Fascinated by their stories, I began to experiment with
communicating with the devas while gardening and hiking in Vermont's
Northeast Kingdom. I read voraciously and learned that nature spirits have
existed throughout time in almost every culture around the world. I soon
realized that my intention was the vehicle that enabled me to see and feel
the nature energies.

I portray my nature vision-feelings through a combination of photography and
painting. I begin with a photo and enhance and subdue the balance of light,
contrast and color to work an image into the most authentic visual
interpretation of my experience that is possible.
I call my latest images energy, or 'e' series. These are more stylized
depictions of the nature energies, the familiar faces of gnomes, fairies,
and devas are still camoflaged within their natural habitats, but now the
plants, leaves and trees vibrate in pixels and reflections, some whole, some
fragmented, multiple dimensions, overlapping realities.

I am entranced by nature: the harmony, the patterns of symmetry, geometry,
the vibrant and soothing colors, the protective camoflage for flora and
fauna, healing energies, medicinal properties, the intricate beauty... I
create art to share these observations and to expand awareness of how
awesome and beneficial the environment is to all of us.
