Artist Statement:

My paintings and art journals reflect a deep connection to nature and all sentient beings. Inspiration is all around me, especially the organic rhythms of my mountain home surrounded by abundant nature. I am continually floating on memories from childhood, growing up by the sea and marsh with my artist mom and adventurous dad, each instilling art and creativity in me from an early age.

From waterfalls and bright green mossy covered boulders, to the tiniest hummingbird sipping nectar from flowers in the garden, I am reminded of the immense power of nature. Many mediums, including acrylic paint, graphite, plaster, clay, and image transfer techniques meld in layers of color and iconography. Birds and ladders are a common thread along with other symbols richly grounded in nature and earth spirit.

I have a passion for humanitarian causes, my art at its foundation is activism with purpose. Those layers of pigment contain hidden messages, mantras, love notes and intentions. Each work of art a message and mantra to the world. The mantra is simple. Be love.
