Nature has become my muse where colors and texture play a major part in my new works.
Everyday, nature’s phenomena reflects back to us its beauty in magical and intense images.
This new body of work is a celebration and an expression of my wonder of this precious gift.
I love what Rembrandt said, “Choose only one master – Nature.”
“The Fire Tree”
Oil on Canvas | 30″ x 40″
Remembering my childhood adventures during summer breaks in the Philippines.
The Fire Tree across from my aunt’s farm had amazing bright orange blossoms and bloomed
all summer long, honoring it’s name sake! I loved to climb this tree with my friends and enjoy
the tropical summer breezes.

My hikes along our Blue Ridge terrain and the French Broad River usually lead me
to surprising and delightful inspirations, and here, the water’s reflection captivated me.
I sat by the edge of the river for a couple of hours, enjoyed my presence, and sketched the scene before me.
