Artist Statement

     Ritual. Lore. Imagination. Nature. Spirit. Science. Religion. Witchcraft. Something simple, everyday. Something unknown, far beyond.

 

     We all are drawn to the depths of the human spirit and of the natural world. We dive far below the surface of our consciousness. We strive for enlightenment: to touch the realms of unseen gods, the spirit. My work is my quest to understand my life within the life of nature and to connect with this higher self. Through process and layering, my work will come together in one spirit. Through painting, paper making, sculpture, poetry, writing, and sewing, I show different layers of this one, ultimate work: to unite, to create one whole body, one entity.
