Artist Statement

My work represents what I believe to be the essence of nature and its beauty. As a Wiccan practitioner, I believe that everything surrounding us has an aura and emits both positive and negative energies into the universe. In my work, the mythical meets the physical in fantastical worlds and characters representing the elements, the gods, and magic.
