Artist Statement:

My home is split between the ocean and the woods of North Carolina. I am visually stimulated by the natural beauty that surrounds me in both places. The relationship I have with nature and wildlife touches my heart in ways that expresses itself playfully and interactively in my paintings. I feel close to the earth. Ten years of my early creative development was spent living in a camper in the woods. This lifestyle taught me what it is to feel wild and notice details in nature. In my paintings are qualities of other dimensions and other worlds. These worlds exist side by side with the one we humans
are most familiar with. The episodes depicted in my paintings feel more real to me than ordinarily perceived “reality”. They bridge the gap between experience and emotion.  I create a fantastical story.
