CULTIVATION

I was born in Knoxville, Tennessee where I received an undergraduate degree from the University of Tennessee with a triple major in fine art, art education, and human services, also earning a Master of Theology degree from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary in Massachusetts. Figurative Realism became a prominent feature of my paintings and drawings in the late-1990’s. At which time, I spent a decade in independent study and mentorship with internationally renowned artists and teachers, particularly painters Hugh O’Donnell and Robert Sherer; also Jean Houston, scholar, philosopher, and researcher in Human Capabilities; and Robert Moss, historian, author, and creator of Active Dreaming. It was this intensive melding of creativity and spiritual exploration that gave grounding, energy, and form to my artistic journey.

INSPIRATION

My works are rooted in chiaroscuro style photorealism and hyperrealism, created on large-scale, museum-quality substrates. Each stroke is laid with the utmost attention to detail and an interplay of light and shadow. Working at this level of detail becomes an active meditation. Like a repetitive mantra, I move into a peaceful state of flow, a mindless presence. I “read” the paintings the same way I read my dreams; the visual imagery is like a voice that communicates in layers of understanding. It is this potent sense of Presence that I believe is imbued into each artwork.

When urged by a collector’s request to paint a “great white horse” that had appeared to her in a dream, I knew I would have to accept this commission, though it was a major departure from years of work with the human figure. I too had experienced an identical dream during a shamanic healing ceremony during which I was healed from a partial paralysis on the right side of my body. This commission opened a new exploration of what I experience as the energy of the Divine Feminine, allowing me communion and expression of the being’s very essence.

RECAPItulation

My own journey has led me west to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where I find daily inspiration from the light, the land and other creative souls. In the wisdom of my autumn years, I once again find myself at the precipice of a new beginning. My path of discovery has taught me to soften and surrender, to delight in the anticipation of transformation. I remain committed to my vocation to create archetypal symbols that kindle remembrance of our interconnectedness, our Oneness.

“Awaken your spirit to adventure,
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk.
Soon you will be HOME in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.”
–John O’Donohue
