My rhythmscapes are inspired by my life experiences.  They are painted with transparent watercolors on handmade papers.


Rhythms of the process of creating are constant as well as ever changing. 

Omnipotence is present in these rhythms like a friend.  When I retreat to my studio to paint, I carry this friend with me. 

Working with them, the fluidity of transparent watercolor on handmade paper parallels the seen and unseen, known and unknown, foreseen and recalled qualities of subject which emerge during the painting process. 

Each painting comes from within linking me with the past and future.  

Each is a deliberate engagement with all that is mysterious and beautiful.
