Welcome! With the approaching close of this challenging year, I welcome this new beginning as an opportunity to share some of my thoughts and creative processes with you.
I work intuitively, utilizing whatever will help me realize my vision — paint, wood, ink, paper, precious stones and metals, resin, and found objects. I consciously rescue what I include — what others might call detritus. I repurpose my discarded paintings and drawings as readily as the eroded sea shells that I have foraged, paper scraps I have carefully collected, frayed pieces of fabric, and snippets of my memories. I give new life to these treasures by highlighting the beauty I perceive in their insignificance. The act of rescue becomes my embrace of Earth and all that is fragile.
Let’s welcome new beginnings together!
