Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it.

- Mary Oliver, Instructions For Living a Life

As a child I remember sitting under a tree in our large rambling woods in Indiana. I was reading a biology book describing the intricate design found in the tiniest of organisms. Something in me woke up; I saw a connection between order and mystery. This launched a lifetime of looking and making.
My abstract paintings combine playful arrays of color and detailed interactions of line and shape. My creative process celebrates this delight and my hope is to draw the viewer into joy, peace and renewal.
