When you look into the eyes of another, what do you see? What do you feel? These are the questions I hope the viewer might consider when looking at my work.

“The eyes are the window to the soul” has been quoted in various forms across nations since ancient Roman times. I try to capture an essence of the soul in all of my portrait paintings.

We are all connected, regardless of our background, race and culture. My paintings are inspired by my Ojibway/Potawatomi indigenous background. The earth is our Mother and she is personified in this series of paintings.

“Protect Our Mother” Digital Painting, Various Sizes


The natural forces of earth, sea and sky remind me of the significance and importance of our environment. I try to mirror the soul of Mother Earth and her various circumstances and challenges in this changing world. Her many moods are vast, universal. Can we see her pain? Can we respect her beauty and her life-giving forces?

While I have previously focused on oil painting as my main medium, I am currently enjoying, experimenting and exploring the digital painting realm. What fun it is to learn new ways to express the creative self! Another bonus? Not having to clean my brushes!

I enjoy working as an illustrator as well, which is another avenue to share my art with others. It is my wish that my art be seen and appreciated by all. The creative soul in everyone needs to be awakened, inspired and nurtured.

If my art can offer a connection, a mirror in which the viewer can see a little of themselves and this world reflecting back, I feel I have accomplished what I set out to do.
