My work explores the internal landscape of spirit. Meditative pencil drawings examine 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. I plumb the depths of nature for visual exploration of spirit and healing, creating artistic space for contemplation and meditation: a sacred resting place for the senses. Creating connections is central to my work. I work in mixed media, inviting the viewer to enjoy the dance with pencil and pen, paint and fiber, wax and pigment as I explore the nature that inspires me.
