I'm inspired by the random beauty of nature, chaos begetting order. Timeless beauty of wrack and debris scattered at the tide line on a wind-swept beach. Trees glowing with wonder in the soft evening light. Rainbows swept from the fringe of surf. The wild power of storms flashing frantic actinic glimpses, thundering in the night. The substrates with which I work lead me - I never know what I'm doing, I'm simply in the moment, paint and pigments up to my elbows, layers of paper, ink, pigments, plaster, feathers, bark, wood - shaped, carved, deconstructed, polished and then finally complete. From sculptural pieces to subtle collages and abstract multidimensional landscapes, inner and outer; this is my work. Yet my work is play, child-like and timeless, messy and fun, a journey of discovery - painting life's threads out with my fingers, creating from my heart. This sacred earth, the interconnected web of life that we each tremble upon - so fragile, so ephemeral; this is the quiet echo you will hear when you gaze upon my work.
