Artist Statement

Inspired by fluid movement and organic form, each of my drawings is a mapping of a moving meditation and an exploration of the emerging unexpected. Automatic drawing and intuitive mark making give me access to a metaphoric world of imagined imagery that explores growth, renewal, transformation, and the connection between all life forms. Imagery appears as organic, gestural abstraction evoking both the inner landscape of the body as well as an outward connection to the vast expanse of the universe. Ultimately, the drawings are the embodiment of the space between the breathing body and the breathing earth. I continue to explore image making from the place of the emerging unexpected, a phrase that describes the unfolding of the unknown as it arises from the deepest part of ourselves in a creative process that connects us to all life forms.
