I am gob-smacked by the beauty of nature, people and other animals.  I include them in my art as symbols of relationships, concepts and energy.


Typically, I begin a composition or sculpture when I hear a compelling story or see some person or animal that moves me deeply.  I will take that story or animal and create a narrative or symbolic story around the subject and from that, develop a composition.


Once my vision is clear, I proceed to paint, but I’m open to the magic of the process.  Sometimes the art develops a life of its own and shows a different direction to go in,  I follow it and am often delighted with the unexpected experience.


Although my work often includes animals, what I create arises from the common life experiences of all living beings:  bonding, connecting, suffering, yearning, worrying….experiences of awe, angst and loss.   Even if the concept is difficult or heart-breaking, I still like to make my pieces as beautiful as possible.  For this reason, I often use gilding or metallic paints because of my lifelong fascination with the mesmerizing beauty of illuminated manuscripts.


Using this narrative combination of illumination with animal and human subjects, I hope to share with you a glimpse into the ethereal, the ephemeral, the magical, and the mysterious aspects of existence.
