Look at the veins of a leaf, your hand, a tree, ...a river headed to sea, lightning...

In airflow, particles, sound waves…veining across this poor, battered home of ours…Everything predicts everything else. Everything affects everything else.

Maggie Steifvater, Mr. Impossible

In a murderous time

the heart breaks and breaks

and lives by breaking.

It is necessary to go

through dark and deeper dark

and not to turn.

I am looking for the trail.


Stanley Kunitz, The Testing Tree


Living through the past decade has meant existing in a state of constant vigilance and anxiety, seeking connection in a world where other humans feel like a threat. How do we take care of ourselves and one another? How do we make peace with our surroundings?

In my painting process I return to shapes that are found in the natural world: branching lines and layers of color echo botanical and geological forms. My work brings me deep inside the body and far out into the universe. I'm trying to make sense of it all.

I am looking for the trail.
