About The Artwork

From the Listening to Water series: To allow the impossible is to invite adventure and hope. That's when the magic happens. I've had a lifelong love of the ocean and though I grew up in the desert of Arizona, I wanted to be a surfer. My son surfs and more times than I can count, I have gone out with him to play in the water. I was inspired by a documentary on the history of surfing Mavericks, in particular a statement by Jeff Clark who said that to surf Mavericks was "to allow the impossible to happen". I think it's a Truth that can be applied to every adventure one takes in life. Highly textured with a sculpting medium; gold leaf.

• American Painter/Designer • Inquire about Commissions • Membership: Visual Artist Association ARTIST STATEMENT: Transformation. Movement. Flow . . . and the energy within. The energy that exists in the visible as a wave crashing into the shore and the invisible as thought: its effect on us and how we affect it down to the quantum level. This is what I and my art are about. The pieces I create speak to hope, change, enlightenment, transforming and becoming better, weathering the storms and learning to swim within the chaos. They offer a way to embrace shadow and find the wisdom and the light within it. INSPIRATION & SERIES:: I am visually inspired by the rich colors of oceans, forests, and flowers . . . by the perfect curve in the shape of a wave, the winding tendrils of vines and how they connect to everything around them. I am intrigued by Space visually and metaphorically. Images from the Webb and Hubble telescopes utilizing UV and IR filters show us billions of galaxies and richly colored nebulae. Though separated by incomprehensible distances, they are the light within the darkness. For me, beacons of hope and possibility.
