"I am a painter, in oil mostly, of internal and external emotional landscapes.  The body is often entwined in the landscape. I love and need to create in paint, to be engrossed in the expression of my deepest feelings about my personal experience on this earthly plane.  It is a time to visually articulate how I see, hear, feel, how I remember and project. I begin with what I call emotional drawing, emotional mark making, drawing with pencil and letting it freely flow without any inhibitions.  I get in touch with the soulful river of divine energy and then trust in that to inform my mark making.  Sometimes I sit in the landscape and draw from that place and connect that experience to the drawing.  I see what is there, I am often surprised what comes out, and then proceed to paint. The outcome is a visual story about the interconnectedness of this plane and other planes, the connection between life and death, the way I feel in this world."
