"The Yuba River is a continuous source of inspiration for me. The rock sculpture, lush trees and mesmerizing reflections. I never really know just what will come when I begin a piece...it's always different and always surprising. This is my journey: to immerse myself in the beauty of Nature, to feel it and then transcribe these feelings into paint on canvas... I live and breathe to paint... 'My nervous system is enfeebled, only work in oils can sustain me.' - Paul Cezanne"
