A VISION OF THE NEW WORLD (detail), Gouache on Paper, 8 x 12� framed 17 x 21�

Growing up in the area known as "Tornado Alley", gave me a healthy love and respect for the power and beauty of nature. As a child my Great-Grandmother would drag me to the storm cellar anytime there was a severe thunderstorm or tornado in the area. She had a fear of storms and told me many stories of the strange and deadly things she had seen them do in her life. I hope that some of the love and respect I have for nature comes through in my paintings. For me the act of painting is a "call of the wild". When I start a painting, there is a faith that it will be a good painting. There is a hope that people will respond to it. There is a belief that a spiritual connection will take place between the viewer and the painting. As a child, I can remember hearing many animal sounds at night. The sound of fish jumping and splashing, coyotes howling, bullfrogs croaking and insects whining. My paintings are a spiritual journey into those night sounds. The Midwest is my home. Many people have told me that my paintings have changed the way they look at the natural world. I am pleased they are able to revisit everyday images of nature and see them anew. As an artist, it is nice to know that your vision has changed the way people look at the world.
