Moving to the West, with its wide open spaces, clear skies, and independent peoples, I have been inspired to try and capture the essence of this beautiful country. I have become fascinated by the exquisite craftsmanship of Native American artifacts, especially beadwork, and through my still life paintings, hope to convey to others the awe and reverence I feel for these beautiful objects.
