A common thread in all of my artwork is a close investigation of the natural world. I strive to convey both the simple beauty and the delicacy found in repeating patterns present in nature. Living as we do in a highly technological world, motivated by the continual resolve to “get it done” and to “multi-task,” these details can be easily overlooked and forgotten as the urban consumes the rural. I want my work to offer a moment's pause -- to prompt stillness and reflection -- by offering a visual counterpoint to our fast-paced life, reminding us as a viewer of the sacredness of the natural world and our need to live in communion with it.

Over the past two years, my work has focused consistently on the conviction that everything in our universe is connected. This conviction is based on the fact that everything is made up of energy, which prompted my personal investigation of the physics of nature as well as various spiritual traditions and their underlying relationships.

Each painted stone intimately explores this idea of connection through the use of repeating dots of acrylic paint, creating a visual dialog inspired by the varied surfaces (and stories) of stone. The stones used in my 2010 - 2011 collections are from Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, Italy, Africa, Germany, Baltic Sea, Aegean Sea, Ireland, and Denmark. Most of these stones were collected by my hands, with the exception of a few collected by kind souls, some known and unknown, who have collected them from around the globe and sent them to me.
