“The Milky Way Reflected the River Bed”

Light, reflection and space created by using gold leaf and pigments all formed on planet earth.  My intention is to bring more light to a period in time where we all need it. These are interior mind landscapes.

The paintings and drawings are made using handmade materials. Egg tempera made with earth pigments, oak gall ink, and sumi ink sticks are just a few of the materials used to create these works on gold and silver leaf.

I will be participating at the Salon San Francisco 2023.
