Nomadic Alter, Stitch Collage, Ink on Rice Paper, 14" X 13"
I weave a story through intuitive mark-making. The rhythm of nature and our connection to the earth guide my expression. A sound belief in the invisible energy that moves through all things fuels my wonder. I use marks, textures, shapes, and lines to convey a sense of balance and harmony. The gestures are then reconfigured to make sense of how they relate to one another.
The spirit of tools and materials also inspire my practice. Paper I have collected from around the world is an important element. I use natural as opposed to synthetic material as much as possible. Some of the ink I brew from local walnuts sourced from a tree near my home in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
My work is a metaphor for connection and relationship. I hope the viewer will find this reflection thought-provoking, peaceful, and contemplative.
