My mixed media paintings, inspired by folk art, mythology, symbols, and nature, focus on the fine balance of extremes and everyday observations of life. My paintings contain images both figurative and botanical, while the surfaces retain lush colors and a rich weathered texture. I employ printmaking, collage, pattern, and text into the process, creating contemporary icons through a variety of media. I consider my work a meditation on the common threads within cultures interwoven throughout time.
