Trees and plants are important to me. The shapes of sticks and roots, the tendrils and offshoots of a plant, and the glorious colors of flowers can often inspire me.
Grids fascinate me - straight or curved lines, in layers and juxtapositions. I use grids a lot in my art. And I love drawing or writing on graph paper instead of lined paper.
I am so glad that I have a digital camera, and can take bunches of pictures without worrying about the cost. Out of the many shots, one or two will be exactly what I want, but I have to take all of the shots to come up with those one or two.
