"... alone in the woods, I was free to explore.
I felt energized and wanted to play,
react imaginatively with nature,
start the art process."

so a door to imagination can swing open."

Fish Printing
"...once in a while I need to jump out of my artistic bowl.
Sometimes I'm like a tropical fish that grows to the size of its container,
swimming in circles day after day.
To make a creative leap, I have to surprise myself."

Butterfly Printing
"A few butterflies could make me smile,
but to awaken my depleted creative spirit ... a hurricane of wings,
an overwhelming onslaught of beauty, would be needed.
So nature sent me a migration."
