I am inspired by the cycles of Nature.  I create from immediate process based movements.  I use a paddle and my fingers when working with acrylic or oil paints on canvas. Sometimes, I include a small painted Rune within the art work to honor my Celtic heritage.  My intention is that viewers may experience a sense of recognition or create their own stories from my paintings.
