I enjoy collecting things from nature and being creative with them.

The pieces here are created from cortaderia selloana, commonly known as pampas grass and these are the stems.  While they may look simplistic each stem needed to fit in unison. Some are in their natural colors while others I have painted.  I hope you enjoy these pieces as much as I enjoyed making them.

More recently I have been enjoying the process of intuitive painting.  It is a unique process of releasing attachment to meaning, control, perfection or what the final product looks like.  I have studied with intuitive painter Flora Bowley in Portland Oregon and this style has become a spiritual and creative practice that is crucial to my well being.
