Moving through the world with a rare form of synesthesia, I experience life on a supernatural level. Making art helps me process my existence with it’s richly cascading and intertwining sounds, textures, and colors.
I incorporate mythology, symbolism, and anatomy with multiple layers of mixed media technique and materials to express my perception of the world … sometimes light and delicate, sometimes overwhelming and intense.
My art carries themes of ancestral lineage, mothering, collective female experience, traumatic memory, and the choice each day presents: do we exist solely within our personal tragedies or do we weave life from a place of empowered wisdom?
In my artwork lies the dance between these choices; the spectrum of living includes both.
We must know our depths to know our heights: we must howl in wild stark exposure at the moon in order to know true bliss in the glow of sun.
In 2015 I will begin releasing a collection of short documentary films peeking into the inner world of artists.
I teach mixed media art workshops and organize artist retreats in international locations.
Who looks outside, dreams … who looks inside, awakes. ~ Carl Jung
