My work originates from a core belief in the unity and sacred nature of the earth, and of everything in our universe. Formed from the same basic elements, we are all interconnected in the most intricate ways, both visible and invisible. Using a vocabulary of personal symbols, I seek to express this idea by building up layers of transparent color to create the final image. This process feels most natural, yielding a brilliance and luminosity that satisfy me. I’m constantly searching for more effective ways of revealing this mystery.
