Artist Statement

I am motivated by the abstract power that is apparent throughout the natural world.   I interpret what I see in nature in ourselves - perplexing definitions, capturing how many ways there are to look at our environment and to remember that we are all a part of the whole. The work is abstract, I mainly work with acrylics and mixed media.  I use photos of rocks, cliffs, and hardened surfaces as well as the actual as points of reference.  

These forms and images are part of our reality, the physical world-reality, the external being met by our waking self.  The unconscious may see our personal existence as a part of the immaterial.  For me it is remembering what has been forgotten about our connection, unity, and interdependence among all things living and unseen; embracing what is most feared, opening what has been closed, softening what has been hardened.
