Works in the Heads of State, Artifact and Aviary Series are created on the large frond bases of the Queen Palm tree using a variety of media. Each piece is unique, having its own three-dimensional form. These natural forms invite and inspire me to explore surface treatments of color, pattern and texture. My latest series, Kindreds, continues that exploration on canvas while referencing design motifs used by many cultures throughout history. In exploring these patterns I seek to create images resonating with rhythms and energies that connect each of us to one another and to all living beings.
