"I just love nature. I live in such a great place, the Sonoran Desert. Look at the lush petals with such a subtle coloring. See the bird who is enjoying life in the desert? It makes my heart sing to experience this beauty around us. As an artist I choose which subjects interest me and I choose how to display them on the paper. I hope that my choices inspire and excite you. I’ve worked as a nurse, in hospital software, always with art as a side interest. I’d call myself a botanist, an experienced birdwatcher, and a now an artist. "
