From the organizers, "The word “Animalia” evokes images of all animals; birds, bugs, reptiles, furry friends and pets, fish and fowl. Since the beginning humans have depended on animals for survival but have also relied on and trusted them as muses, guides and teachers. They endlessly inspire us with their beauty and teach us about how to be in this world."
A portion of the proceeds from all of the art sales in Animalia will be donated to a local nonprofit animal care/preservation entity, including the Humane Society of Sonoma County and/or Safari West Foundation.

Folk Art: Layers of Thought and Color
I believe in the power of color and the distance our minds can travel through art. Folk Art provides a healing journey into our inner selves.
The inspiration for my folk art series began with my career of writing and illustrating children's books. After finishing a book deadline, I would find images from the completed book that needed to present themselves as larger wall pieces without the interruption of text. It's been a delight to discover that this allows the viewer to create the other half of the story with their own unique set of experiences.
