Paintings above the horizon that celebrate the heart, soul, and beauty of the cosmos and divine feminine. Two paintings are installed in the Vatican Observatory Museum, an astronomical research and educational institution supported by the Holy See. These two sizable paintings, “Phi” and “Juno” are of the outer expanses of our universe, including the Carina Nebula and Jupiter. These are accompanied by a selection of more earthbound inspirations, lyrical compositions of color and light that capture and envelop the ineffable. Many of my cloud paintings are done on metal-both aluminum and copper. The idea of putting something so ethereal onto something so solid from the earth’s crust appealed to my sense of the yin yang of life. Just by looking up we can become temporarily untethered.
“I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now From up and down and still somehow It’s cloud’s illusions I recall I really don’t know clouds at all” — Joni Mitchell
