Art, spirituality and culture are all intertwined. Through my work, I express my beliefs, which have strong roots in the power of the Feminine and Nature, and draw from various mythological and symbolic systems of both ancient and modern cultures. Using artwork, often inspired from my travels within the US & Europe, I tell my personal stories of the world as I experience it, and of myself as an individual in that world.
I have a great respect for what makes people different, as well as what makes us similar. Earth-centered religions, from which I draw much inspiration, believe that everything and everyone are connected and contain their own beauty. Art is a perfect medium to portray these ideas. We are all an integral part of nature, in both a macro- & micro-cosmic sense, and the similarities found throughout different countries and cultures seem to prove this. These relationships are an important focus for my work.
When creating art I enjoy using diverse materials, and for each piece, I select the media that best exemplifies the symbols & subjects I’ve chosen to work with. Each work of art then becomes it’s own personal myth-story.
I also do freelance illustration and design work and have clients & collectors throughout the US and abroad. My work has been featured on TV shows, in magazines and I've been interviewed on radio shows. Several of my paintings have been commissioned by various NJ Historical Organizations. Commissions are always welcome!
