"She does paintings that imply vastness. Her textures are silky, layered washes, and the dark layers below hint at vast, impenetrable space, imparting a great spiritual sense." Askart

Patterns in Nature

I use repeated geometric forms to describe what cannot be seen without magnification's assistance. In my mind’s eye, I imagine a subatomic world in which mankind has no influence. This world pre-dates us and will be here when we are gone.


I find the Higgs-Boson Field theory that everything is connected to resonate with my work. There is no such thing as empty space.


Simultaneously I invite the viewer to take a meditative pace when experiencing my work. I do not dictate what they will find there and how it relates to their own lives. The artwork exists through the personal interpretation of the viewer.


Physically I layer the forms to create space. I want to give a place for the viewer to mentally walk around and explore. I use oil paint, often hand-made from pigment, and layer it with resin.


People often say they want to walk or swim into my paintings. This is most gratifying.


"My work is about the transformative opportunity that art can offer to elevate the individual and give a respite from the weight of reality. Each painting has no set narrative as it is up to the individual viewer to interpret the works as needed based on their own life experiences."
