I am an innovative contemporary artist, exploring unconventional images and techniques in mixed media, collage, acrylic painting, pastel and textile and surface design. I am committed to experimentation and a unique and dynamic expression of my own view of the natural environment, with unexpected color, texture and energy. Through my work, I intend to uplift and brighten the spirit of the viewer, and cause them to question their own perspective of nature and life.
My paintings exhibit a fascination with the physical properties of life and science involved in transforming our environment, such as the power of electrical storms, oceans, volcanoes, oxidation, and the process of renewal and rebirth that arises from deterioration and regeneration. Reverence for life, its phenomena and the interconnectedness of all things are the foundation of my work. Primarily, my images are abstractions and impressions of earth, sky, sea and other mysterious phenomena. However, I also continue to work in pastels, drawing, printmaking, and textile design, and I explore all types of imagery, to expand my creative insight and skills.
