Freedom Flight

Freedom Flight is an expression of gratitude, grief, transformation and liberation.  These works were created as a personal form of therapy in the wake of the loss of my mom.  Birds have become a symbol of her freedom, and in their many expressions I have found the pieces of her that I knew and loved. As a result of my changed emotional state, the way I use paint has changed dramatically.  Where I was once tight and extremely detail oriented, I have become looser, more painterly, and more expressive, pouring my emotions onto the canvas.  Please join me in celebrating life, love, death, and the beauty of the natural world.  This is Freedom Flight!
