Artist’s Statement

I am an artist of many styles, techniques and materials. My creative spirit needs many channels of expression to feel satisfied. This means that one day I might be painting realistically in oil, and the next sculpting an abstract ceramic sculpture. It makes for a rich, varied creative life (and often a messy studio!) I wouldn’t have it any other way.

My inspiration primarily comes from nature, dreams, Surrealist/Symbolist/Pre-Raphaelite art, teaching art to children, the love of color and form, and sparkly iridescent things. The work is about emotion, beauty, spirituality, feminism, the Earth, childhood, and the magical possibilities of the Universe.
