"Tree Of Imagination" 40x26.75 Oil on Birchwood Board


“Tree of Imagination,” 40x26.75 Oil Paint on Custom Cut Birchwood Board, 2022

This artwork was begun and inspired by my time in residency at Ghost Ranch near Santa Fe, New Mexico.

I paint about what I want to see, more than I paint about what it is that I do see. Making art is how I embrace the chaos of the world without trying to control it. I paint what I feel, see and experience while focusing on the love. I hope that you find it in my work.

I put it there for you. Primarily a watercolorist who sometimes switches to thinned acrylics, I create large format works on canvas, paper and birchwood. I love creating vibrant works that are expansive and dense with symbols. Painting for me is always a process of emotional fearlessness. Making art is as essential as breathing for me and I hope that viewing my work allows you too to embrace the chaos of everyday life and remember the miraculous and unexpected moments often ignored.
