Bio

My work contemplates the mystery of being alive.  It is my medium to communicate about my observations and intuitions on the complexity of being a person in this world at this time.  The work reflects a deep attachment to my particular landscape.  The interaction of sun, water and air with all the life forms is a huge energy producing system.  It feels both very strong and very fragile.  It is gigantic and intimate with every breath.
