I am a traditional realist painter and draughtswoman who makes art about humanity and grace.
I create to connect – with myself, with others, with the world. We are not islands. We are an interconnected web of souls, all trying to find our way home.
There is a wordless place I search for when I create – a sense of expansion and inner stillness that connects us with the rest of the world. It is a feeling of being broken open, of letting life flow through the deepest parts of you.
I work primarily from life and the human figure in oil and pencil, but also paint still life and landscape. Each piece is a search for that wordless, timeless place.
