About

As an artist, I obtain my inspiration from the external world around me, but reveal in my paintings the internal world of my imagination.  By reducing my images to their essential elements, I can bring simplicity, myth, and the primal, to my explorations of limits and boundaries with the intent of moving beyond them.  Recently, I have worked on a series of paintings that explore the soul’s journey.  I have followed my vision to places I had not intended to go allowing my intuition to guide me.  I have found power in words and incorporated them in my work; I have used collage and montage to go places I had not been before.  I use life story as the dark, rich compost to generate new creation and have in my most recent paintings worked more intuitively than ever before.
