When I am painting, I am communicating my need to rediscover balance and harmony through color and form. My work evokes the passion I discovered for ancient Asian folding screens during my Mount Holyoke College years as a Comparative Religion Major, intertwined with my reverence for Cape Cod dunes and gardens. What emerges is a landscape of my spirit and an invitation to join me there. For me, painting is a form of meditative practice that calls me back to mindfulness of the natural world and the deep connection I have to it. The medium is acrylic, often with black brush strokes reminiscent of the ink of calligraphy.
