Specialty: Mixed Media
Art making is similar to map making. It is a way of exploring the world, both seen and unseen. I believe my personal interest in a new minimalism is related to a fascination with the idea of limitation. Within a framework of limitation lies the possibility of infinite variation. I start with a small idea in order to let it grow.
Landscape has become very important. My wandering eye captures the line between earth and sky. Recent themes and concerns: weather, growth processes in nature, geology and gratitude.

Movement in space has become central to her work as an artist and she will be forever grateful for the unique perspectives that dance and performance have opened up to her.
