I am fascinated by the process of Becoming. How does something become itself? My greatest teacher of Becoming is Nature. A seed in the dark earth dreams of the tree it will become. It has never seen sunlight or blue sky, yet it literally moves the earth to reach for both.
I am in awe of a seed's tenacity of spirit and willful determination. In painting, I investigate the process of Nature's Becoming in all its effort, exuberance, and mystery. Over the years, I have painted abstract forms and ideas in many ways. When I started painting nature-based abstraction, I found my path as an artist. Perhaps it is more right to say the Spirit of Becoming found me.
Every time I pick up a brush to investigate Nature's mysteries I am more enchanted and grateful. When I paint in this way, I am simply the best version of myself.
