Years ago I was asked for an artist statement to accompany my work for an exhibit I had been juried into, at the time I struggled to write those words. Now I realize that the statement about my work being influenced my "nature" was so very true. However, I have come to realize that it is even more specific than that...."water and trees" are at the very core of who I am. In order to survive each day I need to fill the "well" periodically throughout the year with time in my favorite places in order to keep producing work that make me feel at peace within.
I hope that each of you have such a place that is important to you and your work.
Thanks for stopping by.
