Galleries

My life’s work is oneness. I get ideas from the natural world and thank nature for the inspiration it gives me. My ideas come from all of nature - from trees, flowers and the cosmos. All of nature is in my art. I get a lot of surprise, interest and gladness from my work and from the people who visit my exhibitions. When someone encounters my work and likes it this is synchronicity and this is why I continue.
