I create works that reflect Nature and the communities evolving from this awareness through the use of organic materials and natural mineral pigments on paper, wood, and large stone. My work engages a presence of life straight from the land. Living in Northern California, I enjoy the study and influence of ancient art and languages. These interests have taken me to the outback of Australia, Europe and the Northwest as well as the Southwest of the USA. What generates creativity are the love of research and discovering new but old things and ideas. My hope is to inspire others to seek environmentally friendly approaches to creating and evolving art and art techniques.
