A teacher once said “Creativity requires influence.” My influence is here: home, family, friends, and our valley. The New River Valley is so full of beauty, and this art is a glimpse of what I see. From the small things like Koi in the VT garden pond to fishing on the New River. I paint what I love. I try to capture the essence and life of the wonderful elements around me.
