My mixed media was developed from sustainable natural resources. Water is added to this organic medium and blended to a thick consistency. Spread out onto quality stretched canvas, I sculpt, carve and cut the medium. Creating abstract, cultural and zoomorphic forms. Formulated from different types of ash, stone, and other organic powders that are non-toxic. It takes two to five hours to sculpt the medium depending on size of canvas. Each piece dries flat and hardens like bark, it looks like carved stone. Lightly sanding each piece and masking the objects I do not wish to paint, I primer the work with different colors. The final process is painting layer upon layer with acrylic or bio paint to achieve a harmonious blend of colors. My medium is termed "Earth Stone" because it comes from Mother Earth and looks like carved bas-relief Stone. Spirit House Art works with the spirit of plants, animals and humans. It is profoundly transformative like metaphorical alchemy or the philosophers stone. Spirit House speaks beyond words.

My earth inspired artwork can have the likeness of stone hieroglyphic's, masonry, stela's, petroglyph's or symbols from ancient cultures. It was inspired by visiting archeological sites and observing the composition of stones & rocks in natural environments. My work contains the essence of the elements Fire, Water, Air, Earth, Wood & Metal.  Molding and carving the organic medium spontaneously, anthropomorphic designs appear. I honor the planet and all her relations in a symbolic form of art that heals my spirit. An arch of energy is experienced working with earth elements.
