I am interested in the connection between art and the natural world, and helping teachers become aware and informed to teach students about this.  The book, Art Education and Eco Awareness, a Teacher’s Guide to Art and the Natural Environment, is a result of that concern. The unique biodiversity and wilderness of our planet spark a desire to protect a few special places. I try to capture the spirit of those places as I paint with overlapping brushstrokes of color, spatial relationships, tension, and strong rhythm. My hope is to connect with others in a concern for a world with wilderness, to share in Rachel Carson’s “sense of wonder” through my book and paintings.
