An appreciation of life forms and their interaction is inherent in the human condition. My paintings express the knowledge and experience I have gained through the healing arts and are influenced by the visual language of nature's shapes colors and textures.

     I perceive the simplicity of nature, separated into basic elements,
then coming together in a unified image, tethered to our collective consciousness.

     I prefer the medium of encaustic for this work as it lends itself to the message by enhancing physicality, luminosity and depth.

     I push the boundary. I take a chance. This unfolding of the life blood of me creates my art.

     I accept that my art is an expression and exploration of who I am.
