There will be a poster of Falling Water available for sale at Guilford College. $20 or with student ID $10.



Patterns of nature, her seasons and cycles and our place in them are the primary themes of my work, whatever my format or approach.

Some paintings are skies, mountains, trees and water or flowers, grasses and leaves in light painted as metaphors for ourselves.  Others are more symbolic, goddess figures, lace, bones, clocks and small altarpieces. All represent the natural world or symbols in up close detail, as broad patterns of light or as pattern.  Materials are oil sticks and oil paint on cotton or linen canvas and wood. The process and the images themselves evolve as I make them.

Some works are more sculptural and varied in their use of materials, and may include small paintings. Some of these works are altars and may be used for personal or group rituals. In the new images I choose to make explicit that which was implicit in my earlier work -  that creating art is a spiritual practice.
