All of my imagery is informed by my experience of the natural world.

I am an avid ( obsessive!) gardener, and spend many hours intensely observing the forms and processes of nature.
There I find a rich, symbolic language which helps convey not only my feelings of reverence and awe towards this beautiful world,
but also encompasses all my dreams, visions, memories, and spiritual yearnings-all that is unseen
and intangible yet so much of who we are.

I love layering and texture and all the creative possibilities of combining painting, drawing, and collage.
I also love the poetry and evocativeness of words, and consider my titles, and often the actual inclusion of text in an image,
integral to the complete experience of a piece.

I almost always work in a series, continually exploring different facets of a concept before moving on to the next "big idea".

When i need inspiration, i step outside.....
