     Sometimes we get stuck.  I paint from where I long to be.  Realizing that right here is the path to there. And the vehicle?  Liminal connections whisper reluctantly, revealing themselves across space and time. If I can get out of my own way, this quantum soup of entanglement is abundant.  My work chronicles the delightful tug-of-war between us.

     I was going to tell you about the portals and my life-long quest to find their edges.  And about the ongoing, Defending Surface series, created from throwing conflicting materials together, which always confirms that nothing is truly opposed.  About creating safe space first before anything can be made.  And the dirt-worshipping tree-huggerism and connection to all things life. Can a harmonious system be built from these seemingly, incongruent elements?

 

     These facets are both fuel and subterfuge to the realization that I am healing the trauma of life interrupted, working towards that Utopian reset.  Take me back to the Zero Point.  What would life look like without that interruption?

 

     My studio is a hybrid of oil paint on linen and papermaking with installation, printmaking, sculpture, and fiber arts, serving as additional "brushes."
