Since childhood I have had a strong interest in and appreciation for color, light and Universal Patterns. I remember looking at my hand while sitting at the beach and being so deeply moved in recognizing the same colors there as in the sand beneath me; softest red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet. And then the equal excitement of Universal Patterns: the same lines seen in the palm of my hand echo throughout nature as veins in each leaf, tributaries of every river. The vision of nature’s curves and waves everywhere and in everything continue to inspire me as much today as that first day of discovery at Stinson Beach.
