My work is a reminder that we are part of nature and the collective whole. 

By weaving intention, emotion, and sometimes calligraphy in artful imagery of nature, my work is a reminder that we are all interconnected in the vast web of life.  We cannot value and save what we do not have an emotional, heartfelt connection to.

 

My mission is to have my art be a visual reminder of our connections to the natural world and the collective whole.

When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world. John Muir

My Process

I use words, memories, feelings, and hopes for a species or landscape in descriptive phrases that surround a painting or are included as an intention that is written on a canvas and painted over and “imprinted” into the painting. 

This process is easily customized to express your own words, memories, feelings, or hopes for a particular landscape, tree, bird, or species you have a strong connection to.
