Apple Tree Art

Every painting and drawing is intuitively created. All my artworks are self portraits of you. Don’t you see yourself in art anyway?

So why not look to find your true self. Use my art. Use it for meditation, for self-enquiry. Let the art challenge and inspire you to find yourself. 

Art can give us nothing.
What is free in us rises to meet art. 

Currently my work is focused on landscapes, impressionist natural intuitive spaces that invite us to find the non-dual open awareness that we are. Pen and ink minimalist drawings capture the essence of a movement.

This photo is of my deliciously, paint-splashed art studio. 

I have a waiting period for commissions. To visit my gallery or to discuss the possibility of a commission contact me. I do ship work internationally.

See some samples of my work below, along with a line or two about the inspiration behind the work. Do enjoy!

Rain drop in flower

Even though I usually paint wide open natural spaces, sometimes it's good to look more closely at the spaces hidden in small universes. This oil painting is of a raindrop about to fall from the petal of a red flower. A simple moment, a slice of time and space.  What...

Sacred Japanese Forest

I think it's true that most artists are never 100% satisfied with any artwork, that's at least how I feel because it seems impossible to express in paint the depth and reality of the true. But we do our best anyway, for the joy of it, and sometimes because simply we...

Walking alone in the blue forest

The still small figure walks in the beauty of the blue forest. Can we be alone and at one? The washes of light weave between strong vertical tree lines calling us in and upwards. We are called inwards and upwards to our highest calling. 

Mountains touching the sunset

I love places and spaces where you can see the sky touching the horizon. These open spaces invite us to remember that we are openness itself. We are the space in which the dance of light and form creatively expresses itself.  This oil painting was inspired by a moment...

Inner Sanctuary

Even in the crazy busy world there is an invitation to find the sanctuary of the true self that lies within. This pen and ink drawing is of the inner garden atrium in my home. My home is often busy, with adult children coming and going, with staff, friends and family,...

For Michael

On news of the passing of one of my loved teachers Dr Michael Newton, author of Journey of Souls, who I had the privilege of working with for some precious years, this abstract oil painting. 

Light taking flight

Oh what a miracle you are little dragonfly, light taking flight. Have you ever stopped, taken aback by the awe inspiring miracle of life, of natural things like dragonflies.  How does this tiny creature navigate his world with such grace? A glimpse of the intelligence...

The dance of duality

This abstract oil painting on the dance of duality, the play of light and shadow, how one becomes the other. This painting was done entirely without paintbrushes, I wore gloves to push and pull the paint across the canvas intuitively. Sweeping motions invite our...

Ancient Forest

Do you see the tiny speck of red and blue? This is a couple sitting in the ancient Redwood and Sequoia Forest outside of San Francisco. The trees are drawn to scale. Mixed-media charcoal, white acrylic paint and a splash of red and blue all in honor of this...

My Love, a drawing

This ordinary moment, one of my favorite things to do — so simple, sitting on the couch with my husband. Here he is watching TV, focused intently on the sport that he loves to watch. I captured this moment with graphite pencil, deeply working in the shadows of the...

Tuscan Country Sky

Where Sky and Storm and green rolling hills meet, we are invited to take a breath. How often to we really look. Truly see the way nature calls us to see ourselves in all...

Be Like a Flower

Many decades ago, I asked my Apple tree intuitively, what I should do to attract clients and business. I had found my Apple tree natural design, and wanted to honor my true self by building a business that expressed this truth. But I had an allergy towards selling,...

The Call of Freedom

It's become one of my new favorite things to make it quick pen and ink drawing using minimalist lines to capture a space. Then I scan the image into my computer, and add a touch of red. A point of focus. This is a scene deep in the Okavango Delta. It is just before...

Open Road Open Sky

This pen and ink drawing is of the deep Okavango Delta Bush. Many trees are torn down and broken by the hundreds of elephants in the area, but there are places where trees have survived and even thrived.  This is one of countless spectacular moments in the deep Bush...

Orange Flower self portrait

See yourself in this vibrant dance of life. A simple flower. A universe. Look until you can see yourself looking back.  This oil painting was painted in an impasto style, with thick layers of palette knife paint was placed intuitively sometimes chaotically but always...
