about

Art is the core of all my learning, a wondrous process that both serves and depletes – always offering a place to return and find more depth in my life.  

I draw my work from my inner world, conscious to maintain an active overview while allowing the art to direct, continually reminding myself to trust the process, get out of my own way and let the work guide and disclose.  The outcome of my work is always unpredictable, though my process deliberate.
