All of my work draws from my close observations of our physical world. Lines and shapes distilled from nature become a visual language for exploring our connections with each other and with nature. I am seeking visual stories of calm and unity–the beauty of the world and the shared truths of our lives.
Working in acrylic and mixed media, I use gesture to describe shape, but also to express action and emotion. I work in layers of painting and drawing, iterating and responding, celebrating the joy of chance, the beauty of expression, and the mystery of concealment and revelation. Slowly each painting accumulates meaning, narrative and texture.
Each painting is a personal interaction between myself and the process, a remembered moment of my story, but I hope that the viewer will find resonances with the stories in their own lives.
