The intersection of art and nature defines my spiritual practice. Painting is the primary way I process and synthesize the mystery of existence. I typically create with a methodical approach using a variety of media - most frequently, watercolor and ink. In my work, I explore ideas that are often considered taboo within the mainstream frameworks of corporate capitalism and patriarchal religion: the exaltation of the female body as the source of life and reverence for the natural world as an interconnected, sacred entity. Many of the recurring symbols in my work are inspired by personal life events - the power of pregnancy and giving birth, entheogenic experiences, and formative childhood memories. Through the process of engaging in creative work, I seek to explore beauty, interconnection, and belief systems that hold power over people and regularly go unchallenged.
