?My work attempts to communicate the energy and light I feel emanating from nature. Careful observations of the natural world become fused with my dreams, visions and intuitions in the totality of the image. Nature is more magical and mystical than it appears at first glance; hidden qualities lie beneath the surface that can provide a mirror to encourage greater human awareness and awakening. Animals, strongly connected to light, healing and peace, appear as the mediator between humanity and these forces that operate in the environment. They call on us to shed our illusion of dominance and act in respect of nature?s balances. In my latest series, the horse leads my artistic journey beyond the veil of the material world to a connection with the macrocosm; accomplished through form, color and ultimately light.?
