I love to synthesize ancient/future ideas, from studied myth and imaginary future models of perception.  I’m inspired to create expressions of a healing nature where my memories and intuition intermingle, where symbolic language becomes visual representation, where I can dream.

I began painting my interpretation of Goddess archetypes and myths while  studying Tibetan Thangka painting at Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colorado, with the master Tikse (proportional drawing), and Thangka painter

Glen Eddy, under the aegis of Kyabje Chogyam Trungpa.

My professors at Boston University, School of Fine Arts, were the painters: Conger Metcalf and Murray Reich who inspired artistic dedication.

After University I lived in Europe and the Near East for several years.

My first teacher in Italy, was the Australian artist, Vali Myers who personified the combination of wild nature and magical realism influences in art. 

As a young artist I first exhibited in California, in the 1980’s with the San Francisco Visionary movement of that time.

For several years I taught weekly groups presenting ‘Art as a metaphor for Medicine,’ primarily in educational and therapeutic  institutions.

I continue to teach,  lead workshops, and retreats in Expressive Arts, and maintain a studio in northern California, USA.
