In my paintings I portray symbolic beings that reflect my inner experience and life process. I believe art has a profound healing influence, connecting both the artist and the viewer through the deception of beauty, truth, and the recognition of the human spirit. Most of my work is rendered intuitively, built up in layers of paint, collage, beeswax, and other mixed media.

Some of the paintings shown here are included in a deck of hand-painted oracle cards called the Illuminated Earth Oracle, which will be available this Summer. The deck features 63 original illustrations inspired by the beauty and mystery of the natural world, along with concepts of the shared human experience.
