**** ARTIST’S STATEMENT OF INSPIRATION ****
I am a dreamer,
and a lover of the natural world ….
an observer, a conduit, a purveyor ….
There is a particular, subtle magic in the first few hours after daybreak.
I find my zen here …
Divinity flickering in the first rays of golden sunlight through the branches of the forest ~
Sacredness shimmering atop the waves as they caress a naked shoreline ~
Holiness bursting in the buds of the early spring light….
An ephemeral meditation.
In a world of violence, hate, heartbreak and disenchantment, love and beauty can still heal.
“BEAUTY WILL SAVE THE WORLD”
If you are lost in these dark and trying times, I channel this beauty to bring you back to your heart. To your sacredness.
I grab my canvas, brush and paints, and walk along the edges of the early morning with you…
Seascapes and Landscapes, Florals and still life, whimsical figures
Materials and Techniques
I paint in both oils and acrylic, at times incorporating other materials – gold leaf, beading, glitter, found materials – to enhance and embellish my work. I am inspired by nature and do my best work painting en plein air.
