My work represents my way of re-balancing myself and reconnecting with nature. A passion for ancient Asian art led to an impressionistic approach to form and color with black or green brush strokes that are reminiscent of the ink of calligraphy. I often use a dry brush to mix and layer colors directly on the canvas. As time goes on, I have become more playful and less of a perfectionist. My whimsical side is often revealed in many of my mixed media pieces. What I hope emerges in all my work is a landscape of my spirit and an invitation to join me there.
