I find beauty in imperfection, incompleteness and impermanence. It is a beauty of simple things... rustic, worn, and weathered.
I spent many years living on the Eastern Mediterranean shores and on Orcas Island. Now I live on sacred Pueblo land in Tesuque, NM.
I use a limited earth tone palette, many textured layers, advancing and receding, with marking throughout.
My process is to first lay down layers of paint, pigment, ash, any remnant of nature. Then take it all away. What remains is a transmission of silence from these ancient lands.
