I strive to evoke a powerful message of the shared spaces between nature and humanity in my paintings. I reflect on the fragile that has radiant inner strength. My “Wildish Spirits” series is an ever-evolving series of mystical, uplifting, and spiritual characters inspired from my childhood spent with the Northern California and Oregon forests as my playground. These memories come to life and bring a sense of child-like wonder to my contemporary, imaginative art. This series examines relationships between nature, animals, and people as well as representing a strong protective, and nurturing awareness for our natural environment.
