“Art is not painting what you see, but what you make others see.” Edward Degas
Vincent Van Gogh believed that it is good to love many things and to love them to the fullest, because that love can give you strength to accomplish much. In that vein, I am passionate about our environment and to help this precious world that is crying out for healing. I have researched many topics involving our waterways and am driven to use my art as a tool to help heal the wounds inflicted by humans through mismanagement and abuse of resources. With most of my plein air paintings, I have written blogs about the related environmental issues. As Edgar Degas said, “art is not painting what you see, but what you can make others see.” The passion behind my paintbrush is to place the viewers in front of our natural wonders, to ponder our incredible world and to inspire better stewardship, one painting at a time.
