Having lived a life surrounded by art and supporting other artists as an Art Docent, Studio Tour Coordinator, Gallery Curator, SoulCollage® Facilitator, and local art patron, my work now wants to reach beyond friends and family to a larger audience.
Last year, I converted a greenhouse building into a studio so an artist friend could participate in the studio tour. I heard my beloved art mentor of 10 years, Jean Schmidt, calling to my heart that this was a space for me to prioritize art as an expression of the spiritual and social change happening in these times. Building a beautiful space to create has allowed me to hold SoulCollage® gatherings, host private art shows, and create a fresh body of work. I continue my passion for promoting and supporting local artists while transforming found objects into transformational statements of our integration and dependence with the natural world.
2023 is the year to reveal my work to the world. My passion for promoting and supporting local artists for the past 38 years has been fueled by the beauty and possibilities of our county.
Change is the only guarantee in daily life. My work reflects dismantling, restructuring, and rebirthing as we navigate social and natural change cycles. I transform ordinary, unwanted objects into statements of our integration and dependence with the natural world, our connections with the unseen parts of ourselves, and our relationships. I inspire people to open their hearts and minds with curiosity and hope.
Having graduated from a career as an engineer, I delight in creating structures and forms that are both beautiful and a bit out of balance, for it is in the falling that something can tickle the imagination, shift an imperative, or shine the light on a new way of being.
