Art is neither an object nor an occupation, but the expression of the soul of the artist. My inspiration comes from nature. Since I was a little child, I have collected things in nature that inspired me. I keep a treasure box: things like an abandoned paper wasp nest and a dead carpenter bee. An array of 'pretty rocks' sits on a windowsill. My soul finds itself in photography and digital art. What we see around us becomes part of our soul. I want the walls of my heart to be decorated with beauty. If you find the pictures I share with you to be on the walls of your home and grace the walls of your heart, then I have accomplished my goal. This is the beauty I see.
