Describe your painting:
This is a painting inspired by a small creek hidden in White Deer Park.
What inspired you?
My want to spread appreciation for the beauty of nature inspired me to paint this. Sometimes we are all too busy in our day-to-day lives and too consumed of our own demons to take a second to stop and fully comprehend and be healed by this Earth around us. I want to show that everywhere, even a place like Garner, there’s beauty to appreciate.
What is your background as an artist?
I consider myself just starting out on my career as a painter.
Do you have a connection to Garner or did you learn anything new about Garner as a result of your painting?
I have grown up and lived in Garner the majority of my life.
