In my adult life I have studied, and practiced, many spiritual disciplines. These practices have strongly influenced my work,causing me to dream my paintings or see them in meditations. I grew up in Minnesota and also lived in Arizona for a number of years. Many of my paintings have a metaphysical message reflecting how both of these places have impacted my inner landscapes and beliefs.

I am a multi-media artist painting in mixed media on paper and large oils on lightly textured canvas. I taught myself to oil paint at 14 from a paint by number kit, developing my own methods of mixing and layering to create depth, texture and movement. These large scale paintings are very symbolic and interpretive, a form of expressionism.My works on watercolor paper are whimsical and light, sometimes with an underlying political/ social message. Many are done in a narrative style using animals to represent messages about the environment, religious conflict, and sometimes just intentional humor.

My work is a type of interpretive expressionism.

All work is the sole property of the artist.
