I am in love with color. Whether I find it in nature, in fashion, or on the tip of my paint brush, color can incite a rush of emotions. From the deepest indigo to the palest pink, the color choices I make in my art are very deliberate. The colors I chose for ‘Joy’ came straight from the rainbow. I hope Mother Nature won’t mind that I took inspiration from her amazing color palette.

Today, like most days, I am in awe of the breathtaking beauty around me. The colors, textures, and bountiful variety of life here on planet Earth have a way of making me feel very humble. From Nature’s vast oceans and forests, to the flawless design of her elaborate ecosystems–From the most majestic mountain to the smallest leaf, Nature’s grandeur continues to amaze me. Even the most seemingly insignificant element plays a vital role in Mother Nature’s beautifully orchestrated master plan.
So at this time of thanks, in addition to recognizing my multitude of blessings, my gratitude goes to Mother Nature–for without her, none of the other incredible things in my life would even be possible. In her honor, I will continue to use environmentally friendly materials as I create art to celebrate this planet we all too often take for granted. Thank You, Mother Nature.
