I create European influenced expressionist influenced salvaged sculptures, oil, and encaustic wax paintings. I apply abstraction, adding and subtracting to bring moments of discovery beautifully created with many varieties of materials. This is a journey of acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer on a journey between two worlds, the temporal and the spiritual with the joining path being grace. My paintings radiate a vibrant visual feast.
My mission is to show viewers how despite trauma we can rise above our circumstances by experiencing the manifest glory of God all around us. Through my art there are messages of eternal love, heavenly glory, and an unceasing celebration of life. These presences bring joyful rest and create healing sanctuaries.
I am honored to help you find the perfect artworks for your walls.
