I consider artists to be the modern day mystics. The seers and translators of Mystery.
Their work is the negotiation of two worlds: the sphere of mapped and predictable exteriors
perceived as "reality"...and the veiled other world of permeating undercurrents that pulses
with potential. Artists succeed when they bring "into reality" something nourishing
and accessible from forays into the place beneath and beyond what we know.





I paint in acrylics on canvas, board and found objects. My work is influenced by the
shapes and metaphors of nature, universal mythic elements of story and dream, psychedelic
explorations, feminine perspective, spiritual folk art, the drawings of young children, art deco and
nouveau design, emotional and sexual energies, dark underbellies and folk magic.

I have no formal art education. I developed my expression through a mix of
inspiration and experimentation. I paint inner landscapes, revealed  to me through years of
introspection, lucid dreaming and playing with psychedelics. I am voraciously interested in
the underpinnings, where things connect: bodies and psyches, religion and science,
dreams and realities.  I relate closely with the element of water which allows me to
stay creatively fluid, open to intuitive influence and at home in the wells of imagination. 


EVOLUTION OF A PAINTING-CLICK

Stars and seeds I see 

wink inside

all shapes between.

In each humble

unhollow cell

potential's potent

ringing bell

sings dark bits

to bright explosion.

Raining keys

in colors pulse,

 sink and strike

chords and notes

upon the lid

of heart and eye.

Overfull will spill

the seen unseen

stars and seeds.
