My paintings are meditative love letters to the worlds of plant life and pattern. Each piece demands patience, receptivity and so…much…time. I layer small gestures, balancing openness and density. I try to convey a fragment of the feelings I receive from being aware of the Earth’s immensity, intricacy and beauty.

I am guided by the way my body feels when I work in my garden or stand in an old growth forest. The every-day functions of plants are beyond beautiful and happen to be the whole reason we can live on Earth. I like feeling like a speck in the amazement of so much life.

Growing up, my parents ran a textile restoration business. The house was covered in textiles—color, texture, and pattern on every surface. I loved—and still love—tracing symbols across cultures, time and space. The pattern language of textile roams all around the world. I dip into this language in my paintings to merge the collective interpretation of living on Earth with my own felt sense of nature and plant life.
