Artist Statement


My fascination with views of the Earth and the transformation of places began when I was a young girl. I would lay in the back seat of our family car during camping trips, gazing at the tall trees of Yosemite. At night, the trees morphed into people. I still remain intrigued. I wonder what life is like at a street corner or intersection.  My aim is to create a new environment with a new perspective in life.  Is it possible to invent a new world?

Encaustic and mixed media, including maps, grids and tactile materials, create the veils of light, depth and transparency in my paintings.  Weaving together the intricacies of the natural world with an abstract environment, I create new and unique surroundings.
