The power and magnificence of birds is a perpetual inspiration for me; not only are there a seemingly endless number of them, but their range of emotion and behavior parallels our own.   My art works to appreciate this relationship,  while simultaneously celebrating their shape, color, and inspiring energy.  To explore such a diverse and powerful subject, I use a wide variety of materials, including: wood, bronze, fabric, chalk pastel, watercolor, oil paint, and most recently - woodblock prints.  I have a broad collection of paintings, prints, and small sculptures that I could show in a variety of combinations depending on space.
