“I am interested in our relationship to each other, to other species and to our environment. I am drawn to the narrative behind a painting, one that I try to express through symbolism and loose associations that spark connections and reveal truths that lie just beneath the surface. Often dark or playful, but always beautiful because it is beauty that touches our soul and opens our hearts and minds.”
So excited to have LOST WILD reviewed by Chimera Mohammadi for L.A. based AUTRE Magazine! To read this beautiful and thoughtful article click here.

Rainbow Dip has been juried into The Space Between, a group exhibition curated by Karen Gutfreund for the Project Space at Arc Gallery in San Francisco! “Through the lens of self-identified women and non-binary artists, in exploring one’s unconscious realities and portraits of dreams and fantasies, the exhibition is a portal for recognizing or re-knowing one’s self to understand the passages of consciousness, inner journeys, memory, and being impacting emotional, poetic, spiritual, and subconscious planes. The artists portray the space between, where creativity is born and then lives as a powerful talisman through the stories that we tell ourselves and to others in search of the divine.
