Artist’s Statement

I have come to understand my art is not about me, but the world around me.


The purpose of my art is to bring joy and inspiration to others. My work represents the phases of my soul's journey and is an expression of my spirit responding freely. Every one of my paintings reflects an aspect of life's journey: to search, pursue and live from the heart, despite the challenges of the human condition.

 

I approach painting with absolutely no restrictions or rules. This freedom creates a clear sense of diversity within each piece. Over the years my techniques have expanded and changed based on my relationship with textures, tools, and most importantly color. My unique process is an interplay of the paint merging on the surface of the canvas, allowing the materials to dictate the mood of the piece. My work uses energy and emotion to create a 'color reaction'.

 

In the end, it is all about letting go and trusting my intuition. Tuning into life's vibrations allows me to form a 'paint-to-canvas' expression of love. I am filled with joy and gratitude for the gift of each art piece coming through me.
