This will be my last post until after Christmas, so I just want to wish all my friends and those that visit my blog and very wonderful Christmas. May you find all those perfect moments and cherish them, whether it be a walk or run outside, a hug or smile from someone special, or to be able to just sit in quiet and be thankful.
Turn on the Christmas music and dance! What a special season we have been given to celebrate the birth of a baby named Jesus.
My art often begins with a single photograph, a reflection of my eye—an eye that is deeply attracted to the texture, pattern, and shape found in nature. Whether it is the intricate pattern on the bark of a tree, the gentle curve of a woman’s breast, or the smooth, shiny shapes of pebbles along the shores of Lake Superior, I seek to display the wonder of creation in its purest form.
From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course. From photograph to canvas to sculpture, my hands become dirty, my fingernails caked with the mediums of art, and my heart becomes filled with joy as each piece blossoms, quite organically, into what it was meant to be.
I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it is not always obvious. But, quite possibly, the viewer will see in a new way and will feel a new appreciation for the organic elements around us.
