"The natural qualities that animate nature have filled my life and my imagery since youth. I am taken by wild beauty. The wilderness is alive with idyllic disposition and dramatic personae that invoke an animist sensibility and compels a strong sense of belonging to the earth."
"The natural qualities that animate the Pacific Northwest have filled my life and my imagery since finding a home in Northern Idaho. I have been taken by its wild beauty. The wilderness to the west of the Rockies is alive with idyllic disposition and dramatis personae that invokes an animist sensibility and compels a strong sense of belonging to the earth.
After receiving a BFA, I secured a 6-month apprenticeship with the artist George Woodman before continuing my education to receive an MFA which qualified me to teach in art schools and Universities. I received an NEA Fellowship through the state of New Jersey. Throughout my life, I have divided my career between teaching and creating. I apprenticed for eight years in Don Miguel Ruiz’s inner circle and have been an active practitioner of his Lineage of Toltec Wisdom since 1994.”
