Bringing in ELEMENTS of the earth
into Fine Art
My “Elements” series is a creative blending of semiprecious stones and unique pieces of the earth with traditional fine art. I love nature. I love finding things that were created by nature such as semiprecious stones, shells an other items, some of which are millions of years old.
“I’ve never seen anything like it”
Most of the stones I use have been collected for a year in order to work out my compositions and then incorporate them into my paintings.
I get them from all around the world and from various vendors. Each semiprecious stone has individual properties generated energetically from the stone. The energy can be felt by wearing the stone, touching the stone and by having the stone in a room of your home.
I encourage people to touch the stones on the art to resonate with its properties. I include properties of the stones with the descriptions. Some stones are healing, energizing, loving, calming. Some resonate with different chakras and evoke emotions. These properties will fill your room where the art will hang.
I love working with and showcasing the unique beauty found in each semiprecious stone. I work with mostly Grade A and B semiprecious stones. Sometimes I use stones that are in rough form before they are faceted like a fine piece of jewelry. The semiprecious stones I use in my Elements series come from all over the world.
I hope you enjoy these unique works as much as I enjoy creating them.
From the Artist:
Emerge; to me the word “emerge” means to break out, to be set free, to break away, to come out of… which is where I feel like I am at in my life right now. I am in a sense starting over, emerging from a being really sick for a long time. Emerging from all the hardship and coming into a new life.
I am emerging into my new life, plus another chance at life. New doors opening where I am breaking away from the old and emerging into my new life; and in every way.
It is exciting and full of a vibrant energy that I have craved, faught and urned for so long. This painting where it is heavy with stones on both sides of the panel then coming together in the middle. To me one side represents the passionate energy I have, while the other side it the reality of life; having them collide and merge together to become one, emerging reality with my passion and energy for my new life.
This painting was so much fun to create. I fell in love with these small pinkish quart point that I acquired at The Gem and Mineral Show in Denver, Co. last year. I loved how they are so small and fragile and when you put them together how powerful they look. Representing every little step we take will eventually emerge into a larger whole, or bigger picture.
To me this painting is small (8×8) but is quite impactful. I hope it will fill you with the energy and passion in your own life and in your home.

Zeolite: In particular, zeolites are said to be extraordinarily helpful for absorbing and removing toxins, whether it be in the environment or in a person. In a person, this metaphysical aspect makes zeolites excellent healing stones, and they are often used in conjunction with Reiki.
Zeolites are also said to be useful for agriculture or gardening, especially when they are buried in the field or garden.
Zeolites are said to remove negative energy and bring in happiness where the negative energy was.
