My work includes both ethereal landscapes and abstract designs. I am intrigued by texture, color, and the juxtaposition of shapes. My interest may have started in childhood when my mother taught me to sew clothes for my dolls and (eventually) myself. I can still spend hours in a textile store though I rarely sew anymore.

The subjects I choose to paint are organic, either originating from Mother Nature, or inspired by her. I begin my mornings with meditation and then to my studio to paint. Landscapes/organic images emerge after applying a dozen or so thin layers of glazes over gesso. One goal with my work is to transport the viewer into a realm of calm and respite, or perhaps to recall a memory of a favourite place or loved one. My visual vocabulary seeks to communicate the indescribable serenity and healing experienced from nature. Centuries ago the Persian poet and mystic, Rumi, put it simply: "Observe the wonders as they occur around you. Don't claim them. Feel the artistry moving through and be silent."
