I am a multi-passionate artist-mother and community collaborator.
For me, art is a form of field work. Experimentation, exploration, observation, drawing and listening are my “tools for the journey” to delve into mysteries, sufferings, joys, and our ever-expanding web of stories; personal to cultural, ecological to historical, mundane to metaphysical. Probing and interacting with “place” is central to my process.
I am currently making works on paper using pen and ink, water color and layering to explore shadows cast by plant stems in situ and a series of delicate, humorous, spindly botanical bones hung in a whimsical installation.
I also love to relax and “paint doodle” with watercolors, inks, or food coloring and sometimes a sprinkle of salt.
