"It's good to have an end to journey toward, but it's the journey that matters, in the end." Ursula K. LeGuin
I consider myself a mixed media artist who is rooted in the disparate values of Abstract Expressionism, the Blue Rider School, and Surrealism, as well as the deeper dimensions Yoga. My paintings are directly created through meditation and are inspired by the landscape of mid-coast Maine, where I’ve lived for most of my life. While non-representational, my work loosely references ocean, rock, fog, stars and trees, as well as the places where water meets land and the built environment. I’m interested in maritime charts and topographical maps, and much of my work gives the sense of being done from an aerial perspective. While I work toward a finished image, the beauty for me is in the the process of creating, which I see as a spiritual practice.
