In the summer of 2009 I attended a visionary painting workshop with Alex and Allyson Grey. It was the genesis for a body of work very close to my heart that I call the visionary series. After going into a meditative state I would begin to sketch without having conscious awareness of what would be coming out. I was surprised to see the birth of fish, birds and other creatures in landscapes that had a dreamy quality that were also making a statement about the state of the world we are living in. It anchored an awareness in me of the responsibilty we carry as stewards of this planet. I use the word steward because as far as I know at this time we are the only sentient beings who have the power to destroy this place we call home.
