STATEMENT

My artwork expresses my fascination with the mysteries, rhythms, energies and patterns of the natural world around and within us. It communicates a wide range of poetic images and feelings from deep and mysterious, to serene, to light and whimsical, to bold, lush, vibrant, and pulsating. In my paintings, I work in oil, gouache, or watercolor, and in my prints I work in both oil and water based inks, to suit the desired mood or moment I wish to capture with immediacy. My technique combines the best features of abstraction with organic representational imagery, conveying the beauty. fragility and strength of our special human place within the larger, everchanging, evolving cosmos. Themes include landscapes, botanicals, still lifes, and animals. Through light, color and composition, I explore these subjects, sharing a spiritual/sensual voyage. I find inspiration in my passion for nature, and numerous worldwide travels.
