Shifting changes in light have intrigued me since I was a child growing up in the Midwest. As a young woman, I learned how to fly single engine airplanes and these experiences of flying long hours in various weather conditions are paramount to my practice as an artist. The constant changes in weather have become my inspiration and imagery. The changes in the atmosphere are personal records of light as a physical changing presence. Records of time, memory and emotional experiences are found in the process of recapturing the passing ephemeral moment. Painting skies has become a meditative process, a process that transforms the tangible and the intangible.
