Artist Statement... I have always been drawn to the liminal, the "between" spaces that surround us: birth, death, thresholds, the moments where day fades into night, where water meets the land, the edge of the forest, the edge of sleep... the hedgerow. If we look closely, there is always more than meets the eye in these spaces.
A deep love of folklore informs the mythic imagery in many of my paintings and drawings, as do the abstract patterns created in nature: lichen on stone, light playing through leaves on trees, ripples in water.
