I was born in the Upper Midwest and grew up on a small family farm. I loved wild weather, cats, dogs and farm animals, whose love helped save my sanity, along with the love of my grandmother Alice Petersen, an entrepreneur ahead of her time. Grandpa Petersen and I fished a lot together in summers, and my grandparents provided an oasis in their home.
I started painting spontaneously in 1977, a few months after a powerful spiritual experience that removed my desire to do drugs. Alcohol and other addictions soon followed. I decided the power that got me clean and sober was going to do the painting through me. I consider all my art spiritual energy art using prayer and meditation before painting. I offer up each piece of art as a prayer. I love this work. I want to get my art out all over the world to help with healing.
Standing in front of one of my paintings while contemplating and meditating upon its image, you are immersed and drawn up into the higher dimensions of life. This offers opportunity for personal transformation, affirmation, confirmation and inspiration. The longer you look at my paintings, the more you see and experience. I believe Spirit is everywhere, inside everything -- from a grain of sand to animals, people and my artwork. Viewers and collectors state they can feel at least several feet of energy coming out of my paintings with overall energy in their homes improved.
A process of prayer, mediation, and a written letter to my Higher Power asking that Presence come into, work with and through me. Each painting is offered up as a prayer to this Power to be used for healing wherever it is need, often for animals.
I paint on Belgian linen, cotton canvas, paper, and wood with oils and acrylic paints. Mixed media may be added to the painting including but not limited to clear or quartz crystals. Acrylics dry faster, oils up to a year both depending upon thickness of paint applied.

I sign each painting and include a signed dated Certificate of Authenticity.
