Artist Statement: My work is heavily influenced by nature. Every time I walk the Chicago Botanic Gardens, the beauty and peacefulness found there generate feelings of rejuvenation and renewal. Healing Waters brought to life one particularly beautiful tree, its branches dipping gracefully into the water at sunset. The title of the piece comes from the therapeutic value of being part of such a scene.
