Standing Screens

I get lost and found and balanced in nature. Standing screens grew from my passionate dream of creating in paint dwelling spaces where us fragmented humans, immersed in color fields, rekindle calm, vital balance.
Woods & Water


Spheres occur willy nilly as I paint, in my process as color strokes and forms bring a canvas along and through its journey. There seems to be some necessity in nature and painting for this cycling, circling. Musically and with mirroring, every moment in paint responds and resonates with all the rest. I can try to avoid this as I paint, but before I find some wholeness in a piece, there it is!

Somatic Figures

Soma (body) of all that is holds story. These paintings attempt to convey the somatic continuum field within human form. That is urgent for me because people get so trapped in negative thought and emotional patterns, are thus often unhappy and/or unhealthy. We also live incomplete, unauthentic lives. How sad. By painting vital figures one with energy field, I hope to move people to happier lives, kinder to and loving ourselves and others.
