“My work explores mark making, patterning, gesture, flow consciousness and paring down to essentials. For me, the process of art making reflects living in general. I am interested in what the process has to teach about living wisely. I love the idea of changing the larger world by everyone starting with themselves. The connection between place, process, materials and form in relation to a meditative state is essential. Non objective forms that predate label, forms imperfect and evolving are of interest. The work is inspired by architecture, primitive art, metaphysics and the practice of yoga. I am concerned for the state of the earth, the feminine wave and the reflective slow revolution of expanding consciousness.”
