As an artist, I look for the unseen patterns and hidden narratives that reveal the magnificence in all things.
I make use of archetypes from the cultural and mystical history that connects all humans and all life forms.

As an artist, I look for the unseen patterns and hidden narratives that reveal the magnificence in all things.  Robert Henri said, "Paint the spirit of the bird rather than its feathers."  There is a still point in every moment and to capture this essential luminescence is to acknowledge the ancient wisdom in all things. I make use of archetypes from the cultural and mystical history that connects all humans and all life forms.  Joseph Campbell said that artists are the shamans of our time.  I believe that we have the ability as well as the obligation to find and share truth and offer direction to the greater community.  It is with this inspiration that I delve into the riches of the collective unconscious and the imagery and symbolism of my dreams to draw out something bigger than myself to share with the world.
