Bio

My work is in response to images that appear in my mind- always in color. As I work to capture the images on canvas, I realize that the shapes and colors represent myself in various spiritual stages. Sometimes my spirit is bound by the concerns of the world and other times it flies or dreams of flying to another universe of perfect harmony. The marks that I make are the path of spiritual freedom that I experience when I paint.

I have spent most of my career as an abstract artist, but my walks on the nature trail that leads to the Wolf River near my home inspired the “Wetlands” landscapes. The trees for me have come to symbolize spiritual transformation. Although they are bound by the earth, they reach for the light.
