I believe in the transformative power of art to empower, heal and connect people. Grounded in the spirit of play and joy, I consider my intuitive art making process a spiritual experience. My studio is my sanctuary. I enjoy processes and methods that require waiting, slowing down, and are meditative. Materials and selecting the materials are important to me. Art making cultivates a sense of curiosity, wonder and possibilities and is my practice of being present and resisting certitude. A strong belief and connection to a divine power is often expressed in my works. I am inspired by the natural world and stories of the human experience. Symbolism is the common thread that is woven into my work. I make mixed media and book art and especially love hanji, Korean handmade mulberry paper.
