A near fatal car accident (TBI) in 1988 in Australia, prompted my artistic path. This
experience of death led me to ask myself "If I have only a limited time to live (which is of course the case) how should
I spend my time?" Answer: love, run, sing, dance, cook, camp, hike, travel, read, learn, think, do and draw and paint
and paint and draw!
I use my art to express dreams, visions, the possibility of facts and my imagination,
uncontrolled by reason. I appreciate the profound order of the natural world; it’s purity of form and purpose from the
micro to the macro. The painting process transforms into a meditative, contemplation rather than a representation.
A lot. Unleash my heart in my art and in the world. Fearless. Go forward. Go now. Trust myself. Fly free. Ignore conventions.
Giggle. Laugh. Howl so loud as to get tears in my eyes. This is life. Do it now. Take it all in. Compare this moment to no
past moments. Live.
