Born in Laredo, Montana, on a small working farm/ranch, led to the benefit of understanding the rhythms of the earth. Understanding that humans suffer and rejoice from the energy of the land. Vital energy existing in land, animals, water, and minerals connects our hearts to nature. Humans need connection. They need language and they need the arts to express this language when there are no words.
"I spill watercolor and batik dyes on various surfaces, such as watercolor paper, muslin cloth, yupo (polypropylene) paper, mineral paper and canvas. This is followed by applications of acrylics which alter the state of the watercolor and dyes."
