I have lived in Florida for 43 years, and am dismayed by the loss of wild Florida to development during this time. From my first year I have loved kayaking and walking in the swamps and wild places in Florida, and am now painting in Florida state parks and gardens, in hope that people will recognize, treasure and defend our precious natural places.”
