Our human nature deeply desires expression. Thoughts and feelings run through our "station" and like antennas, we open our senses to what is invisible to the eye.  I have the desire to bring my inner world to expression. Imagination is in place to work from. Imagination balanced with trusted foundation. Oil paint is my medium. I was practiced in watercolor for 30 years where I developed a style of the obvious in my communication. How I perceived the world painting people, places and things as my subjects, I gained national recognition during my partnership with Nordstrom Department Stores. Pulling from my former background in the graphic arts, advertising and marketing, I developed a product of my colorful watercolors. The prints were featured and sold through Nordstrom's Gift Department along with other smaller stores across our nation. I not only created the images.....I ran the business and built the product.

Today my inspiration comes from subtle feelings. My interest lies in philosophy, dream and vision work along with mythology and eastern thought. I interpret through my own experiences of emotional understanding , what I have learned what lies behind, underneath and "lost". I am in love with the irrational, abstract symmetry of thought and imagination working in tandem to create paintings. I do not title my work after completion. The viewer is independent to discover and follow their own imaginative sense trail in the reflection.

       Costumes speak of brown days

                  tinged with a burnt smell.

                            Smoldering remnants of internal memory's

familiar beauty

                 no longer holding value of sacrifice.

Sitting on the root of a tree

                          supported by flowers

hearts

    creatures

                                                  whose tendrils emerge

from cavernous depths

        twisted with gnarled beauty

                     burnished in rich patterns of voice

                     mimicking beliefs held in costume, 

       the old is reverently formed

                  as a reminder.

Gently touched,

                         acknowledged for what it was

                without which

the face of what is

                               could not be revealed.
