‘Looking beyond what is visible to its essence’

Artist Statement


A friend once referred to me as a Renaissance woman.

I paint, sing, know the names of most plants and flowers, birds and their calls, I make bread, sew, weave, knit and preserve much of our own food from our organic garden. I’m not sure she was right, but I do love to dabble in these gentle arts and try my hand at almost anything. Although I haven’t yet found the time to keep bees!

I was never sure when I was growing up what art form I would pursue; I just knew I had all this creative energy I needed to express.
