Artist Statement

My work explores the internal landscape of spirit. Meditative pencil drawings explore the natural objects that fascinate me: shells, bones, fossils, bare trees and roots…the architecture of nature. These explorations form my personal constellation of image and meaning, and my work spins off from here, becoming richer with time and repetition.
My work invites the viewer into connection with spirit. Intimate and meditative, it creates a sacred space for contemplation. I have always believed in the healing nature of art, weaving creative expression into the fabric of my life. That belief has transformed into a deep knowing that art heals. The process of creation heals me, and I send that healing out into the world with my art.
