Fantasy beasts in a purple forest

My images flow directly from my imagination, guided by intuition, in response to a random underpinning of watercolor and ink mark making. I approach each new piece by first selecting a limited palette, often reaching across the color wheel to take advantage of the helping hand complimentary colors can lend each other. Drawing is a first love, and I relish using my pens to solve the puzzle presented by each new upstart. Using acrylic markers and other semi-opaque media, I am able to push and pull as a drawing develops, looking always for relationships between the characters who emerge and suggest the storyline.
On the most foundational level, my work is autobiographical. I work in series around recurring themes of magic and relationships between creatures both real and imagined. I draw inspiration from world mythology, dreams, and poetry. Gods and goddesses in my Art Pantheon include Elizabeth Murray, Remedios Varo, Leonora Carrington and Paul Klee. Always, my aim is to shed light and offer joy to a world so often deficit of hope.
