In August of 1999, I began training to become a registered nurse. I studied human anatomy and physiology. This opened a whole new world where I saw what lies under the skin and I began to get a glimmer at how we are put together and how we function.

With a background in Qabalah and Anthroposophy, I see the body through lenses of spirituality living in the world. But how do I communicate this revelation of human’s literally being made in the image of God? PAINTING! I’ve been painting since 1995 and lost interest in many of the common subjects such as, landscapes, still life, etc, but anatomy really captivated me. Why not paint anatomy?
