Largely influenced by a lifelong fascination, awe and love for the natural world my paintings are simultaneously overlaid by a deep personal concern regarding human impact on natural and social environments. Beneath an image or surface of paint I include etched words or illegible narrative as well as pieces of collaged layers from my childrens’ drawings or newspaper articles, seed pods or notes of poetry. While my paintings most often visually reference seeds, plants, bees, birds, bovine, equine and/or human figures, I am most drawn to the patterns, scratches, drips and dirt of the understories exposed in the layers of a dissolving image, and thus dissolving notion of what a mind has preconceived. Dis-solved interconnectedness is revealed and we are reminded that we are indivisible from our natural environment or from each other.
