Original Photo

The Intimate yet universal images in my work are meant to spark reflection.  You don't have to look too closely to find modern narratives packed with humor and imagination.  The genre I have created is called Abstract Objective.  It expands and contracts from the meta to the surreal.  I see what is real and see through what is not.  There is a messy nature to human consciousness yet the possibility of core virtues that overcome surface controversy.  Truly look and listen to the stories within yourself.  Find the container in each image and speak from your heart whether it's to yourself, a stranger or a friend.  Witness how negative spaces can become positive with the right focus.  

Tell me the story you see in Spirit Ride which can be found in the Figurative Narratives gallery.   There are common themes, but each individual has his/her/their own personal version. 

One of my best sellers is Avatar Portrait from the Surreal Portrait gallery.  I invite you send a portrait of yourself for a custom piece.  You may order one of my favorite model, but the incentive for having one done of yourself is a more personalized piece and a savings of forty percent!  

Romance is frequented focus of my work.  A lot of couples spend considerable time discussing which of this series to hang over their bed.   Here is my favorite in the Intimate Relationships gallery.  

An example of music's impact on my creative process is Whole Lotta Love Soundscape in the Bold Abstracts gallery.  As you might guess, it was painted while listening to Led Zepplin.  

The photo to the top left is after finishing Fall: Yoga for the Seasons.  It took four years to finish this oil on canvas.  Then I finishedWinter: Yoga for the Seasons in four days.   

My digital art process involves using photographs I've taken and altering them on my IPAD with an Apple Pencil.  The photo on the bottom left was taken in NY and used in Freedom Warrior

Over Father's Day weekend of 2021, I enjoyed setting up my tent at Art in the Park in Lanesboro, MN to debut this website. Here is a short video.

Inspiration

The West Bottoms provides an architectural backdrop for figurative juxtapositions which aims to reveal an integration of the sensual and spiritual.     

Techniques

I explore the latest technology as a playful, learning creature and bring you one woman's personal vision.  Below is a community of Avatar's living in Springfield, Mo.  

Career Highlights

I'm a Board Certified Art Therapist who has been practicing for the last 30 years.  I'm striving to invent new ways to collaborate with others.
