This morning I spent some time in our garden before heading to my studio for the day. I love being in my shop but this time of year it's hard to tear myself away from all the blooming things and the delicious scent of orange blossoms that seems to float in the air. So I spent some extra moments sipping tea, pulling a few weeds and watching a butterfly dance around the yard. I think I have spring fever.
I'm a mixed media artist living in the Southwestern United States. When I'm not in my studio I like to spend time outside observing the goings on of the bugs and birds and the passing clouds. The intricate balance between humans and the natural world is an ongoing theme in my artwork. I try to walk lightly on the earth.
