The materials of my work are vital to the creation of my work.  They each have an intrinsic quality that draws me to use them in my creative process.  Whether its encaustic, found object, oil, acrylic, each speaks to me at a visceral level.  The surfaces of my work becomes visual record of the interactions between me and the medium.    Concepts of integration and division, hidden and revealed, grief and joy, guide the direction of the work during the creative process.  Monochromatic palettes as well as the colors of the earth explore texture, line, edges, shape, and rhythm.  I record the emotions of my being through times of contemplation and prayer, from poetry and nature, and from music and quiet.    My work is about creating a visual record of my experiences: past and present, separations and divisions, joys and sorrows.  The investigation reveals personal rhythms of my spirit.  It is within these visual musings that the work becomes an offering of my dialogue with the human experience.
