Endless Possibilities                                 My narrative mixed media reliquaries, assemblages, & paintings contain multiple facets of symbolism that are both quirky and cerebral.

“When the mind wants the soul to experience something she throws out an image in front of her and steps into it.”

Meister Eckhart

 My artwork: assemblage, reliquaries & paintings, explores the inner landscape, feeding the soul with practices that honor its presence. Inspiration comes from many sources including dreams, mythology, and a wide spectrum of both religious & philosophical beliefs. My pieces are both cerebral and quirky. I have found balance in my creative life by making art using mixed media, found objects & recycled materials. I use multiple facets of symbolism in my work because "meaning shapes seeing" and it allows the viewer to find layers of  enchantment with each viewing. 

 

My blog explores this creative process with lots of interesting images & tidbits.
