Nature Inspired Art 

What does nature mean? According to the dictionary, nature is the physical world and everything in it (such as plants, trees, oceans, stars, etc.) that is not made by people.


My hope is through my art, you discover the many shapes and forms, both real and abstract, nature so amazingly takes. Though your eye may initially be drawn to one of the instantly recognizable features, like a tree or flowers, an elusive concept or the many hidden forms interwoven among the intricate details of my drawings will captivate your attention.


I invite you to joing me at the first in person Open House I have had for my art in almost three years. While I have had a few small multi-artist shows and sold artwork here and there, I am very excited to be the feature artist in the gallery and have numerous piece of my work on display. Even more exciting, I have seven new pieces framed just for this show!

I chose this drawing, Tree of Eden, as the centerpiece for my exhibit. I even scanned the drawing so I could enlarge and adjust it so that it would work for me to turn the concept of the original ink drawing into a mixed media piece. I am very please with how that piece turned out.

I was so happy with how it turned out, I then scanned the colored pencil/watercolor version into Photoshop where I added a background to it.. It's just been a week and I am excited that I have already sold reproductions of this version and am just waiting for my current phone to break to put this piece on my own new phone case as my sample art.

The open house is Friday, March 30 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Speeway Centre for the Arts gallery at 1340 Main Street, Speedway, IN. Free, kid-friendly and open to the public.


After opening night, my art will remain on display for you to see through the end of April. You may visit during open gallery hours, Wednesday through Sunday, noon – 6 p.m. (or message me) or call 317-654-7323 during gallery hours to request a personal appointment.




Speedway Centre for the Arts is located at 1340 Main Street, Speedway, IN. Nestled in the heart of Speedway, you will find Main Street and the area just around the gallery has suddenly sprouted into a great family- and/or date-night destination hotspot--and it's just minutes west of Indianapolis. Go-karting, a winery, breweries and several great restaurants are all walking distance from the SCFA gallery--it's big city flare with small town charm.
