Special Instructions

Artist's Statement:

"My paintings echo my emotions and my awe of nature and its cyclical patterns. They are abstract yet reference landscapes - not landscapes normally seen, but landscapes that appear on a threshold. New life blooms out of destruction and decay, while death takes over simultaneously. In each piece I try to add an element that keeps the image from collapsing into despair. As I express my yearning for connection to all life, my current paintings of despairing landscapes yield to hope, often on the back of one impulsive stroke of paint.  I am honored to be part of the Ashes to Art Project 2012."
