The sacred is in the ordinary. It is to be found in one’s daily life;
in neighbours, in friends, in one’s backyard. -Abraham Maslow

There is beauty found in the small details, especially here in the mountains—lichen growing on trees, tiny mouse tracks on snow, ever-changing clouds in the winter sky. Many of my illustrations are loosely based on real-life experiences. This lakeside painting is inspired by fond memories of a sunny day spent exploring with child-like wonder. Read more about that wonder in a blog post.
