I have always painted nature. My first exhibited work, 'Tree,' painted at the age of five, was part of a traveling exhibition of children's art curated by the Philadelphia Museum of Art. My search has always been for particular locations and particular subjects that beg recording. In woods, alongside fields, in quiet gardens, in solitary places, I find a source for personal works. Like Wyeth, Winslow Homer, and Georgia O'Keeffe, I try to bring to life an equivalent of the intensity and beauty that I find in nature.
