My paintings and drawings explore the profound connections between the physical and spiritual world. I think about place and how my surroundings impact my feelings and thoughts. Although I am a city dweller, landscapes beyond the control of humans stir my soul most deeply. My paintings of landscapes, portraits and birds embody the power and vulnerability of mind, soul, and spirit and the ever-present passage of time.
I have had the privilege of experiencing a number of untouched landscapes through multiple artist residencies in the U.S. and Iceland. My work has appeared in national and international, public and private galleries and museums. I received Visual Art and Art Therapy degrees from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
