In both visual art and music I am informed and inspired by the sea and landscapes which surround me. The ever changing effects of light, weather, and seasons mirror ones life and experiences. Time spent in solitude surrounded by nature is an investment in oneself, and allows for reflection, enrichment, and growth. I spend as much time as I can hiking, kayaking, and exploring Washington County. My process of creative self expression seeks to encapsulate and enhance this awareness of the spiral of life, of which I am a part.
