Inspiration for my work comes from nature, imagination and dreams. Whatever the subject matter is, it becomes my fanciful, lyrical, made up world. There is something magical that happens when painting, the process enriches my connection to the earth. Painting layer after layer of watercolors and oils can be a meditative experience. The goal is to create a painting that can be a retreat from our hectic stressful world.
Bits of "this and that" are transformed and become part of something new. As the artist, I want to be open to, even surprised by, whatever that turns out to be. How will this old stuff be reborn and reconfigured?"
