    Artist Statement

     

    Through my work I capture the visual representations of the subtle energies of nature. Inspired by the natural world, the human form, botanical life, geological references and galactic imagery, I infuse my work with a sense of connection to all that is and one's healing path. Each piece reflects a reverence for nature in its many forms. With a long time fascination of the floral form, I believe that the flower is the most beautiful form in nature. It is one of the only forms that holds such beauty, color and attraction combined specifically in order to populate itself and draw to it pollinators. With the flower's sexual organs on display, it is one of the most sensual forms in nature and ultimately exuding pure creativity and potential. This fascination has propelled much of my work to align with that pure creation focus and potential of growth and expansion. 

    Being a long time student of yoga and a healing practitioner for over ten years, I blend my work with a connection to energy awareness, higher consciousness and the potential that lies within each individual as their truest self as a reflection of this potential and growth mirrored in nature.
