I believe beauty is necessary, serving as an invitation to savor life and a way to experience a sense of the eternal. My intent is to make art that stirs the soul and connects us not only to the human experience, but also to what lies beyond our sight.

My creative process is about connection….to the beauty of the world, but also to my soul, my spirit, and God. My paintings are created through intuitive responses while engaged with the work. The process is completely organic and spontaneous. What emerges on the canvas is an internal language that is highly emotional and personal, yet at the same time universal. It speaks of places unseen, but at the same time comforting and familiar...like memories of a place we feel we have been before, but can't quite recall all the details of the experience.

My inspiration comes from the colors and forms found in nature. Living in the Pacific Northwest just outside of Portland, I am surrounded by a never ending wonderland of lush green forests and a bounty of colorful flora. Using color as language, my work is alive with emotion through the movement of the brushwork and the luscious layered colors. Much like memories, each painting is filled with layer upon layer of paint, building a rich history into each piece.

Though largely self taught over my career, I have studied with Krista Harris, Audrey Phillips, and Charlotte Foust. I am influenced by the work of Joan Mitchell, Cy Twombly, Willem de Kooning, Monet, and Van Gogh.

When you engage with my art, it is my hope that you will be overcome with feelings of joy, freedom, and great peace...be reminded that you are surrounded by beauty and joy no matter your circumstances, you are loved by your Creator, and you are never, ever alone.

We are cluttered with images, and only abstract art can bring us to the threshold of the divine.
