My paintings are windows onto a world, a surreal world, where images repeat and are transformed into words within poems.
I create personal iconography; I transform simple forms into my own mythology. And although I paint figures and the landscape, they are always symbolic and my colors always set moods rather than imitate nature. In these oil paintings, I meld the familiar and the possible through sensual intuition.

Sometimes materials can inspire; sometimes a space restriction or infinite space can challenge, and at times, music can give you unprecedented ideas. I was lucky that all of these came together to give me Vine Woman.
Vine Woman wove herself into my mind one night while I listened to a young composer Jeff Stanek play his piece Winding Leaves. The following day, I immediately got materials for an armature and started collecting vines and branches. A few days and some sore hands later, Vine Woman was placed on a nature trail for all to enjoy. Eventually, however, she will return back to nature.
