I am a woman living a life of simple abundance. Photography, impressionist paintings and writing.
“Stripping away the human illusion of our separation from nature is at the core of my work. This illusion extends to a presumption of a separation between land, water and sky. I explore the interdependency of these natural elements. During the creative process, I am repeatedly reminded of humanity’s dependency on nature. Trees speak to me as if we shared a breath. I long for the rhythm of the sea or the flow of a river. The sky is like music to me. In my art I am compelled to express these connections.”
