"The Artist is the Confidant of Nature" - Auguste Rodin

Artist's Statement

I have drawn and painted all of my life, but it wasn't until I became disabled with Multiple Sclerosis in 1993, that I began painting full time. Ever since art school in the 60's, I have been fascinated by nature's infinite detail and color. I try to paint what we all see every day, but seldom really notice. My hope is that those who view my work will feel something of what I felt when I first experienced and painted it.
