I live in the country, surrounded by nature, something more rare now. There are moments during walks through the fields and woods where I feel connected to all things. I strive to put that idea into my work. I might describe this show as My Friends the Trees but this is not unique, I always paint trees. How I might describe my work: a bit of Dr. Seuss done by an Amish gal—structured, precise, thoughtfully articulated but radical, like nature.
