12 x 8.5 mixed media drawing on archival paper
Collection Statement
My recent work reflects my desire to bring the magic of art to bear on the often-hopeless state of the world in these
tenuous times. Inspiration comes from the beautiful juxtapositions of color and richly layered textures found in
natural surroundings my dog and I observe on our daily walks. Often the color combinations I spot outside make
their way subconsciously into my palette. I give meaning to my images through use of archetypal symbols spanning
the full range of human history. I am fascinated by supernatural pathways to subconscious wisdom. I am curious
about the purpose of art in prehistory and other cultures. Visual influences include Indian miniatures and medieval
manuscript illustrations. My aspiration is that viewers come away from my work with insights into their own
personal stories and landscapes in a way that brings them hope and joy.

Artist Statement
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.
