“Chimera” is a piece that represents the meeting of the divine creative spirit with the physical plane. The female figure is a symbolic being that is enigmatic, yet undeniably human, set against a hedge of earthly beauty. Above her is the mysterious form that, in a dream-like vision, influences the energy around her. As with much of my work, this piece was created intuitively, letting the images take shape as I go. There is a feeling of both sadness and hope in this painting, as the monochromatic palette enhances the spectrum of darkness and light that is within us all.
My work has evolved from years of gathering a personal iconography based on the natural world, as well as my own healing and spiritual growth. I use color, texture, and figurative imagery to depict the symbolism that is part of the human experience. I believe that art has a profound healing influence on both the artist and the viewer, and through the depiction of beauty and recognition of the human condition, our spirits are uplifted and connected on a deeper level.
