Artist Statement


            I work on creating an atmosphere through my artwork- curious, fresh, and vibrating. Delicate construction and line speak to movement and collective thought. Drawing inspiration from classical High Renaissance themes, Eastern cultures, chromo-therapy and the female experience, I focus on connection between the human and the natural world. Through visual language, these contemporary works celebrate peace, nostalgia, and exploration into natural mystery, embraced by the gentle caresses of our Mother Earth.
