These images begin with scans of my drawings and mixed
media work and are combined and collaged digitally using
My work contains many references to arches, doorways and
windows. I am attracted to these structures architecturally,
but also enjoy the fact that they are the bridge points
between exterior and interior worlds. As an artist, I
am always attempting to bring glimpses of my interior
spiritual experiences into the exterior and vice versa.
My method of working allows me to integrate papermaking,
drawing and digital media. I compose the images in stages
solving the visual puzzles that each stage presents along
the way. I find great pleasure in the process of making
my work. My hope is that my own feelings of joy, peace
and connection with spirit are translated into visual
joy for the viewer.
