mixed media -fine art -clay -visual journals
My paintings, art journals and sculptures reflect my deep roots and memories of growing up on the southeastern coast of North Carolina, as well as my connection to nature and all sentient beings. Drawing from the abundance of inspiration that I am surrounded by, and the organic rhythms of my home and nature, using mythical symbolism and allegory, I create work that speaks to my history of sand, sea, and my current mountain home. Using my intuition and many mediums, including acrylic paints, graphite, plaster, clay, symbols, and image transfers, my creations and threads of Earth spirit meld and emerge onto the canvas, the journal pages, and into my sculptures.
My work can be seen at ArtPlay Studio and Gallery in the River Arts District as well as other locations and galleries in southeastern North Carolina. I also enjoy teaching and offer mixed media classes and 'art of the journal' classes throughout eastern North Carolina.
