People and Nature inspire me. I have been a teacher for over 25 years and in my position, I inspired students to do their best to prepare for the future for themselves and their families. I still want that for people and I want that for the future of our planet. So my artwork features people and nature. Growing up in Southern California meant that the beach was my favorite place to relax and enjoy family, nature and friends. Much of my artwork in designed to express the relaxing feeling we get when we simply enjoy nature as it is presented to us. When life gives us stress, step into nature and be calmed.
