I'm a seer.

I'm a visual story-teller.

On the canvas, color and form begin as visual dialogue... a conversation.  Images develop from layers of acrylic glaze that build from bottom to top as I intertwine drawing and painting in the composition which creates story making and short vignettes from a world I know and experience. A world I know well where the secret places reveal themselves to me as a whisper, a knowing, a longing, or a prayer.
