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.....
