I am an artist who explores the relationship between nature, spirituality, the collective subconscious and the human experience. My work is deeply personal, celebrating the connections and disconnections we all experience in our relationship with the natural world. I have recently begun using the medium of encaustic which allows me to address issues of memory, mark- making in the collective subconscious and spirituality through repetition in nature..
