In ancient times Clans chose someone to be the "Fire Carrier". The job was sacred; keeping smoldering tinder burning and safe was crucial because the tribe could not live without fire. It was a huge responsibility. For it was from the sparks they carried that ensured food, warmth and light. Artists are the fire keepers of the modern world. While fire is no longer a necessity for daily survival, it is the artists in our world that feed our souls, warm our hearts and light the way for creative spirits. The journey of the artist is fueled by creative mystery. Fire is the only element that is never repeated and each one is unique to itself; like a fingerprint and like one's art. We have a huge responsibility and a sacred job. Our work is imperative to keep the current verve thriving. I am blessed to be part of this clan!
My art is about the visceral level of connection. I am attracted to the spiritual dichotomy of the ephemeral and transcendental. As an artist I love texture, line, collage, layers and the illusion of organic interiors. I am a palette jumper, gravitating and utilizing a variety of media. When I make art, it is in tandem with the unknown and the process; oftentimes my work is unraveled, not planned. I can contour draw myself out or in to almost anything that I am confronted with, I dream in color theory and I know that most of the time purple will solve just about any artistic quandary.
