A Brief Bio
I was born in Eugene, Oregon, grew up in Kansas City and in San Antonio.. I recently lived in Taos, New Mexico, and now make my home in Portland, Oregon, where I create and teach art. I have a second career creating web designs for artists and creative markets.
I think of creating art as a "dreaming meditation". My interests in archetypal
psychology, spirituality, metaphysics, the natural sciences, and art
history are also apparent in my works.
explorations of painting began with oils on canvas, expanding
to painting on panels, then carved wood, and eventually glass and plexiglass.
Feeling a need to break into layers of space, I currently paint on layers
of plexiglass which are stacked in a shadow-box frame. I tend to work
in a manner of free-association, or sometimes from a collage or drawing...
though everything changes once the painting begins.
I also create prints, cards, and art jewelry. To view these, please visit my store.
