My art is a process. The physical act of drawing or painting taps into my creativity and there are always new discoveries. I begin with an initial inspiration – the Bristlecone Pine trees, exotic orchids, the structure of a single cell – to name a few. Sometimes this initial inspiration is representational, and at other times it may be stylized or abstracted.
The main theme of my work is the connection and synergy of all living organisms. It’s symbolic of the delicate balance of the interdependency in life. I see these connections as a perfectly choreographed dance where each element is singular, yet part of the whole.
