All of us feel the pain of the earth as habitats are diminished & species endangered. My work is a way to address that pain, not by numbing it, but by calling power to heal its causes. By honoring & invoking totem species, I am one droplet in a vast healing rain.

Where I live, remnants of redwood forests & salmon creeks move ordinary people to heroic action. Besides donating works to their fundraisers, I help by sensing the spirit of great animals, painting what I feel, giving them voice.

Before painting, I drum, sing, play cedar flute. I ask the spirits of animals, trees, waters to guide my hands, my paints, to reach out to those who see my pictures.

Sometimes the process brings intense experiences. I’ve felt the horror of salmon as their stream beds are destroyed. I’ve felt the delight of a young otter eating her first crayfish.
