"My paintings are inspired by animals and nature. I love to paint freely where instead of planning anything ahead of time I just start painting and see what I end up with. Shapes and colors form organically as I fill the canvas. Pieces are most often titled upon completion, after reflecting on the message I see in them. Some works include mixed media and embroidery and the process of hand-stitching the details on my paintings is both tedious and rewarding."
There lies a reason
Beyond all erudition
That drives me to desire the
solid hum of your voice to
fill my muddled mind.
It is not the Matter,
For the silence of
even your mechanized breath will do…
And it is not the Course,
For when it is played backwards,
Identical is the heartening sound.
It is this Hush.
It fills my head at present and
remains by biggest fear.
