My painting, sculpture, and printmaking reflect my life-long fascination with the natural world and the power of art to transform. Drawing on my background in traditional arts such as icon painting, I create luminous visions laced with saturated color, deconstructing deeply personal themes into a symbolic language that subverts the expected: mummies become cocoons for rebirth and bones capture moments of gestation; light is uncovered from darkness and birds usher in the creative life force. Using flat painted surfaces combined with sculptural forms, my work alludes to ornately carved devotional altarpieces underscoring the sacred nature of the present moment.
