Witnessing our environment as fluid, organic and ever-changing energy, I work to transcend representation. To weave poetic patterns of line and color into imaginative soulful landscapes that I associate with a sensual, feminist landscape aesthetic. Developing harmonious compositions, I base my work on the simple idea anywhere you look in Nature is perfect. Working with these intentions my work represents not only a veneration of the beauty of Nature, but is a statement on nature as supportive of Life, deserving protection.
These small abstract works were en plein air studies from the summer of 2019 created on hikes through birch forests and climbing colorful rock formations of coastal Maine. I used environmentally friendly milk paint and incorporated found birch bark.
