welcome to my site!

please use the links on the right to find out more about my work.

"Each person perceives the beauty of nature differently. Lines in nature aren't straight, yet much has symmetry. The shape of a leaf, the curve of a sandstone arch, the canopy of a tree; all speak of harmony and balance. While these shapes are incorporated into my work, superimposed over the images one can find my interpretation of the chaos created in relationships. Whether it is a mother and child or lovers, all relationships are based on a form of bonding. Sometimes that is conveyed by knots and tangles but other times it is loosely threaded throughout the piece, just as it is throughout our lives. Most of my paintings and prints are played out to the sound of music. It has been a powerful influence in my life and therefore in my art. It's effects, visible and invisible are woven into the very fabric of my work."
