I have been making art since I could hold a crayon. It started with clouds, sunflowers, and alligators, and grew from there . . .
From childhood I was strongly influenced by nature and by the art traditions of my Ukrainian heritage the rich colors and intricate patterns of embroideries, woodcarvings, and pysanky (decorated Easter eggs).
A lifetime of art study has heightened my love of nature and capacity for close observation. Years of traveling and living abroad in Europe, Asia, and Eurasia have expanded my aesthetic understanding and artistic vocabulary.
My work reflects all of these experiences and influences.
