While the inspiration for all my work is the natural world of stones, minerals, vistas and the colors of the American west, one of the most important aspects to the work is the creative process. The space I enter when I begin the process is as much part of my work as is the paint, glass or stone.

The work exemplifies an enduring and deeply rooted love of nature. It reminisces on my childhood filled with extensive travel through the American west as well as my wandering and sometimes gypsy-like adult life moving through and exploring the nooks and crannies of the rockies and all the land west of them. A love of the cliffs and deserts, the alpine mountains and watery coasts is expressed in every attempt to capture the colors and feelings of these places. My work is a visual love poem to the lands that have nourished and shaped me.
