Awareness through Embodied Art
 
                                    
 
 
 
 
                                                           













 


In a world of constant change, uncertainty and the unknown,
when there is no true, fixed
narrative or self to find,                          how do we experience life?
 
 










 

 
 





 

 





My art process examines the affect of subtle, intangible sensations and feelings experienced in nature and culture.



Awareness notices
energy moving in waves, patterns and rhythms, occurring, arising,  passing away, in the moment, simply being, simply doing.


 
 

 
 
 
 
  
 

 
 
 






I explore the qualities of fluid, changeable, elemental materials of the natural world; animals, light, water, earth.

Curiosity and chance create paintings, videos and photographs of materiality, mystery and illumination.                      

 
 

 
 
 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 



 
 
 
 
 
 

 










Life is a Journey not a Destination:
 
In the spirit of the mystery, the Mystery of Spirit,

to live is to live as variously as possible,

to groom one's curiosity like a high-spirited thoroughbred,

climb aboard, and gallop over the thick, sun-struck hills every day.

Where there is no risk, the emotional terrain is flat and unyielding, 
and,
despite all its dimensions, valleys, pinnacles, and detours, 

life will seem to have none of its magnificent geography, only a length.


but,what a savage and beautiful country lies in between.
