The labyrinth asks one to walk a pilgrimage of meditation. In our increasingly busy world the labyrinth can be a tool to problem solve, quiet the mind and find solutions. It might be difficult to find a walking labyrinth so by creating wall labyrinths one can bring this practice indoors and use it as a tool to navigate life’s challenges.

She is comfortable in her own skin. The Goddess Series
The women in these paintings are women we know, have known or may know in the future. They are the women we all long to be and seldom get to. Women experience fleeting moments of inspired joy, strength and confidence in a world where they are asked to do so much. These moments come and go but our true desire would be to feel this power at all times. This series explores female archetypes, the weight that these ideals place on women in society and the shedding of these ideals. The number three tends to be a number of power and spiritual importance. The original idea for this series is based on a study of the Fates in Greek mythology. They are Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos. Respectively they spin, weave and cut the threads of human existence, powerful beings indeed.
The joy of working abstractly is the element of surprise. It can be a spiraling event that leaves one breathless. Sometimes there is great disappointment. At that moment when all is falling apart and there is nothing left to lose, anything is possible.
