My creative process is an exploration of impermanence and interconnectedness; my interests in zen, archetypal psychology, nature, and dreams are researched through mind-body associations like sensory practices and present-moment awareness practices in meditation, and studying where dreams and waking correspond. Tracing my hand repetitively, memories, and metaphoric imagery, express these liminal experiences. Watercolor works on paper are made of circles which are drawn and filled by hand; in contrast, oil works are made by dispersing paint which evaporates leaving circles of residue. These methods address disintegrating time and the consequences of action or non-action on the environment.
