Courage

I make art because I love the process of creative discovery — experimenting with materials, techniques, and color until my canvas takes on an interesting life of its own.  I rarely strive for a realistic representation and often just start with a color, some texture, a brush stroke, a strip of painted tissue paper, then add and subtract intuitively until I discover my painting. My inspiration comes from my personal journey, from the natural world, and from the stories of world mythologies.
