My work honors and explores the landscapes and flora of the desert, inspired by my upbringing in the Mojave Desert and deep love for Trans-Pecos region of West Texas.
I’m compelled to create by my belief that all things are connected. Art allows the artist and viewer to sense their connection to one another, to Earth, to the Spirit.
Richard Rohr writes of St. Francis of Assissi, “...Francis must have known, at least intuitively, that there is only one enduring spiritual insight and everything else follows from it: The visible world is an active doorway to the invisible world, and the invisible world is much larger than the visible.”
I seek to create art to this end -- an invitation into the invisible world, an urging towards our connectedness.
A tiny manifesto:
Kindness to others, to self, to the Earth.
See the divine in all things.
I live in Texas with my husband and our pups, Frida and Diego.
