Painting is my medicine. There is a union that occurs when the brush is in my hand and the page beneath my brush. Art is a devotional practice for me. Watercolors and acrylics are my primary mediums. When I sit down to do my work, intensity builds slowly. I start with soft and subtle layers of color on top of an initial sketch. The act of painting ignites vitality within me. The further I move into a piece, the more pulsating light, fluid and gestural marks, deep color
and contrast, emerges like a visual symphony. Aliveness translates on the page, in my work.
My artwork and process are an extension of all the things that matter to me. My life experiences inform my work. Spiritual growth and development as a way of life is a major force in my creative expression. Walking through life, perpetually seeking the ‘lighted path’ is a theme that can be felt in my paintings. I find inspiration in the beauty of the natural world and am particularly drawn to light and the mood created from the source. My work dances between representational and atmospheric abstraction.
