Artist Statement 

My work is an internally generated and externally inspired amalgam of color, symbols and imagery. The mixture freely emanates from my imagination and a deep connection with the muses who check in with me on my creative journey. Myths and stories from the world over and beyond find their way into my awareness and drop pieces of themselves off to be refashioned and re-understood by my work. 
 
Old symbols and icons ask to be included as do the new. Quantum mechanics plays its role insofar as I can wrap my mind around the explanations available to laypeople. And then there are innocent spirits. Winged people, people of no particular ethnicity and animals. Lots and lots of animals. Earthly beings who have never lost their links with Source, story and the larger connection. 
 
My adventurous husband and I live with horses, dogs, cats and a plethora of undomesticated beings who call the highlands of central Mexico home. My home is situated on the side of an extinct volcano the ancient and modern people have celebrated for countless generations as a primal source of energy and inspiration. Plants, insects, boulders and weather all nudge at me to be included in my work. I allow it. I celebrate it. I am grateful for it.
