Portraits of Rivers

Portraits of Rivers is series of paintings in which I explore my fascination with journeying through a landscape as an act of self-inquiry, like going on a vision quest or pilgrimage to a sacred site.

The rivers are depicted like they are tuning forks echoing across the surface of the Earth.

I began this series of paintings as my MFA project, “Rivers”, at the California Institute of Integral Studies from which I graduated in 2012.

This body of work is a celebration of our ecological systems as an interconnected whole and a reminder that our physical, psychological and spiritual bodies are embedded in a relationship to the natural world.
