I am truly grateful for this honor and look forward to sharing this special moment with you.
I'm thrilled to announce that my artwork, Periwinkle Flowers, Water's Spirit, Ms Pileated, At the End of the Rainbow, Migration Trail, Quartz Trail, Sacred Places and Along the Shore III have all been selected for a prestigious online exhibition at the Naturalist Gallery Nature Exhibition. This exhibition will run from January 19 to March 19, showcasing a diverse range of nature-inspired art.
The Naturalist Gallery usually focusses on very representational nature work – so it is a please for me to be part of a change for their gallery with not realistic naturalist work. It is always fun to see changes like this – and the inclusion of difference in their gallery.

About a year ago, I traveled to the southwest. I found there was something magical there. I wrote this today recalling that trip and its magical aura.
I felt my feet touch the ground. I was peaceful. Taking a breath, I stepped forward, feeling the earth beneath me. Another breath. My body felt the pleasure of touching the earth and slowly moving forward. The connection to the earth was magical. I was grounded, to the air and to the world around me. It was just the earth and me. I took another step, another breath, moved forward again.
It’s the journey and the search that is so magical. Without the search ….. well, for me, what is left is despair, which is why I love the beginning of the painting, the beginning of creating something, and the search and the pleasure of moving the paint, helping it find its home and its content.
