Artist Statement:

While I make my artwork I am relaxed. The process of pen to paper is a meditative experience. My illuminations are inspired by my love of nature, color and pattern. The colors I choose are meant to project a glowing quality similar in feel to a stained glass window. The patterns and design develop as I draw, each new piece unique as each line drawn takes a life of its own. I enjoy creating these images and I am happy to share the experience with the viewer.
