Artist Statement:

Nature is a place where I find comfort from the wild world out there. It was after my father died that I started gardening. Many of the plants I wanted to grow died but some of them surprised me and grew like magic. I started with succulents and then flowers and now pollinator gardens. It has been healing to accept the life and death of plants.

In reflection of life I started painting flowers, butterflies, hummingbirds that would visit the garden. During the pandemic I planted way too many flowers including the host plant for the gulf fritillary butterfly, passion flower. This year the garden is teeming with life birds, bees, butterflies, and caterpillars. Watching this life cycle and the emergence of the butterfly from the chrysalis started my day dreams about transformation.

I started thinking about other planes of consciousness and energy fields. I have been working on a series of world that may not be visible to the naked eye. A world where there is so much beautiful color and there are magical creatures including unicorns and mermaids. This world is an expression of the beauty in I see in nature.
