There were not real influences for me as a child other than in elementary school one teacher encouraged me to continue drawing, etc.

I love to collect paintings by artists I know personally. Each piece of art or photography in my home has a meaning to me and my family. My favorites that I admire each day are the photographs I have taken of my grandchildren.
What kind of work will you be exhibiting for sale at Moss Rock Festival and how was it inspired by nature?
I will be exhibiting photos from my walks through the Boulder Field at Moss Rock, local images of the Alabama Theatre, Lyric Theatre and places I have visited in Europe as well.
