Magic happens in life, in the studio and certainly in the creative process. The exploration of myth and magic is adventure in the studio as well as in daily life. My upbringing as the daughter of a farm implement dealer led me to be quite comfortable with the idea of "cultivation." As I moved around the world with my family I was also exposed to the magic that culture can play in everyday life. In my art I pay homage to the magic that happens when combining trust with process in the studio workspace. Paintings, mixed media works and wooden wall scultures combine to tell the story of this everyday magic. Working in both a spontaneous process and a very structured process has given me a sense of balance in my studio life. This balance has enabaled me to see my life as created in both myth and magic.
