I see my work as a vehicle for the personal spiritual quest. Through it, I explore the possibility that color, composition, and light can create an energy or vibration to awaken the viewer's awareness, to move beyond the painting itself to a timeless state, free of thought and self consciousness.
My art is about opening to spirit, light, and life. It has been a journey of letting go of all my ideas about what art is and learning to paint from that deep well of intuitive knowledge. It is a process that requires a willingness to step into the unknown and the ability to relax in periods of uncertainty. It is about trusting that the creative intelligence will have its way.
Each piece becomes a meditation. In each meditation, a space is created where I am transported beyond the tangible and the concrete into the space of emptiness and spirit, opening the inner eye to a connection with the divine.
