These paintings of primal emotion and motion are inspired by prehistoric cave paintings. Though purposely created, the meanings and purpose of ancient cave paintings and etchings elude us. Did creation of symbolism and art mark the beginning of humans being human? What is the essential experience or expression of being human?

Ancient cave paintings incorporated the cracks and texture of the rock in the placement of the image created. My explorations start with creating texture and layers of translucent washes of color to form my “rock” wall. I let it tell me the movement and the image it needs.
