Relation of Roots
14″ W x 11″ H
Acrylic on canvas board.
I am fascinated with tree roots and their resemblance to neurons in our own biological make-up. Making a correlation to our mental health, so much of our coping with and overcoming adverse conditions in life has to do with the strength of our root systems. Though the environment above ground may be harsh and present many challenges, it is the world underneath the surface that makes the difference. The deeper the roots measure, the greater the potential for growth and stability.

About the Neuron Series
My expressive paintings on neuron-centric subject matter advocate for communities in the realms of rare disease, neuroscience, and mental health. The content originated with my daughter’s rare genetic disorder. I became intrigued by the complexity and beauty of the human brain, inspired by the hope of its ability to re-circuit around inflicted damage.
I bring expressionistic, experiential fine art to the scientific community, yet incorporate scientific research and structure into the world of artistic expression. While the genre of digital neuro imaging is emerging, my unique approach weaves this ground-breaking content with human experience, creativity and painterly tradition - supporting fine art’s foothold amidst the growing influence of technology. My imagery intentionally blurs the lines of the abstract and physiological - recognizable as neurons to those with a trained eye but inclusive to all who are curious.
