Influenced by a lifelong awe of the wonders of the natural world my paintings are overlaid by a deep personal concern regarding human impact on natural and social environments. Beneath the surface of paint I include etched words, illegible narrative and/or pieces of collaged layers. The layers could be from my childrens’ drawings or newspaper articles, seed pods or notes of poetry. These paintings reference seeds, plants, bees, birds, bovine, equine and/or human figures. Yet, I am most drawn to the patterns, scratches, drips and dirt of the understories exposed in the dissolving image.  My hope is these layers begin to dissolve preconceived ideas enabling a viewer to see anew. In the dis-solved interconnectedness is revealed and we are reminded that we are indivisible from our natural environment or from each other.
