My life passions working as an art therapist, wilderness instructor and youth worker, and exploring the world through climbing rocks, travel and mountainous beauty fuel my art. I’m inspired by life and nature in all its forms—calm, chaotic, dry and abundant; thus the nature of my messy, layered and textured mixed media art process combining paint, collage, photography, pen and ink and water soluble pastel. Sometimes I keep it simple, and sometimes I use it all! Found natural objects or wood from construction sites often are my starting point. Adventure, natural beauty, human life experience, and my own internal landscape provide endless inspiration.
