I started early in life painting bird studies and nature scenes, and then later on, I was influenced by visionary art and spiritual practices. I started to paint the figure as a symbol of magical energy in transition. The landscape and the elements became a dramatic setting for the human quest for insight and illumination. It's the relentless beauty, magic, and mystery of creation at the heart of my inspiration. This fuels my desire to share these feelings thru something I make with my own eyes and hands.
