"Nature is an inexhaustible source of my inspiration.  I aspire to capture the spirit, serenity and beauty of nature in hope that my work will stir an emotional response with viewers of my work.....  It is my quest to focus the viewer on the peaceful meditative spirituality of nature.  In nature, there is a reflection of a divine presence that can quite possibly bring about a healing of the soul" ~~  Sandy Askey-Adams
