Shell B

 I have been a studio artist for the past 20 years creating a wide variety of artworks.  My current paintings are an exploration into esoteric knowledge and wisdom using two-dimensional art as my form of expression, communication and interpretation. 

My journey has included many teachings and wanderings into the mystical through meditation, nature, sacred geometry, Daoist stone medicine, plant medicine, music/sound, nature, science and personal experiences. I seek to share my journeys in my artmaking with the intention of the expression of sublime harmony through form, abstraction and color…connection to something beyond self.  I enjoy the idea of the viewer becoming a participant in the piece…guiding the observer into their own inner sanctuary…that special quiet place, where the fast pace of daily life melts away and one returns to a calm, coherent state of being.

 

  I have been an artist all my life and a professional artist all my adult life in one form or another.  My career, after receiving my BFA, started in architectural design creating large scale interiors.  I had the good fortune of working alongside some of the most renowned architects, designers and artists of our time .  After several years, I returned to the studio to paint and create sculptures and whatever might present itself in my artmaking journey. My design experience added a much wider open perspective to my paintings and sculpture. Playing and experimenting with ideas, concepts and different materials to discover my artistic voice has been my greatest joy. It’s always, always evolving.
