Artist Statement

I can describe my process in one phrase: Plato’s “Anima Mundi”: The Soul of the World. I have traveled a great deal and live in New York City as my home base. In both spaces I have a daily ritual of observation and communion with humanity. My work addresses human rights, human psyche, world cultures, ancient philosophies, Jungian thought, the power of poetry, and the connection with the cosmic, metaphysical realms. My images are created using irony, whimsy, scientific and esoteric learning to express the awareness and compassion for the artwork’s idea. My art making process utilizes acrylic paint, watercolor, photo transfers, collage, pumice stone, metal leaf and sand . The support systems I use are wood panels, paper and linen or canvas with or without stretchers.
