Rhythm to Roots
12″ W x 12″ H
Mixed Media on Wood
I am fascinated with roots and their resemblance to neural connections in our brains. Making a correlation to our mental health, so much of our coping with and overcoming adverse conditions in life has to do with cultivating strong root systems. Though the environment above ground may present challenges, it is the world below the surface that makes the difference by a thought life well rooted in healthy, life-giving rhythms which encourage our growth in resilience 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.
