    About the artist

    I'm a multi-media artist primarily focused on painting.
    In my work I'm keen on using color, texture and chemical reactions on the canvas to create what I call meditations. The word reticulation best describes the effect I try and achieve with my paintings. I am curious in how different mediums and chemicals react to one another and what they leave behind on the canvas. I'm interested in exploring and creating my own mythology as well as the ideas of established religion and philosophy.
    Since becoming a mother of two very young children, I have discovered that my work has evolved. I still am interested in creating meditations but the work has become more about building and growth because, that's what I am doing with my children helping them to build and grow.
    The confluence of color, texture, environment & mediation is what it's about for me right now.
