"I feel painting is a joyful celebration and expression of the beauty and challenge of life. I paint from the inside out, intuitively and actively giving visual expression to streams of feeling and imagery. I include depictions of tangible physical objects such as plants, landscapes, a boat, shell or feather. These are touchstones that lead into worlds of color, light, feeling and energy. When painting I commune with the Earth, my body and Divinity, both internally and externally. I feel blessed to work in this capacity and share original creations with individuals and communities."
