My ideas for art
sprout like seeds 
in my mind,
grow with a passion
in my heart

planted on paper, canvas,
cloth or whatever is handy.....

Transformed into ‘
objets d'art’
for you to see
and enjoy.

Come back and see what inspires
me through the seasons.

Like Odilon Redon “I await joyous surprises while  working, an awakening of the materials
that I work with and that my spirit develops”. 

I use abstract expressionism in a personal, symbolic way to give context to universal concepts and archetypes.  Mixed media allows me to explore and experiment until what I see on canvas or paper has a pleasing form and meaning.  By  drawing on my lifelong experience in ceramics, weaving, basket making, papermaking and painting, I create pieces of art with   multilayer textural effect and design  and hope the end result will spark your imagination and provoke an exciting visual memory!
