I learned at a very early age just how fragile and volatile life is.The ability to use one's senses is a gift I have never taken for granted. I was fortunate to grow up in a time and place where I could spend hours exploring nature. Those hours are still ever present in my mind. My childhood walks would be full of watching, touching, listening, imagining and creating. I never let that young child inside of me get too far away. She sees with her heart and her hands are always reaching out for the next sensation. Nature's beauty, the human form and time capsules of the past are all part of my art work. I have spent years exploring many different art forms never settling into just one.
