I paint to feel more alive, more energetic and more spiritually connected to something greater than myself. I envision my projects but understand that when my loaded brush hits the canvas my paintings take on a life all of their own. I try to stay out of my head and let the decisions come from a divine source. My work is always with me, moving and eager to find its way into the world. I aspire to let life feed my art and to remain open, receptive and responsive to the moment.
I work with acrylic paint and take pleasure in the challenges of design fundamentals and colour relationships. As I continue to grow as an artist, my work becomes more real in full illumination of all that I know. Really looking at things enhances my sense of wonder for both the singular pattern of my experience and for the meta-patterns that shape all my experiences. I believe that if I follow the leads that arise from contact with my work, my technical, emotional, and intellectual pathway will become clearer. My goal as an artist is to draw a line from my life to my art that is straight and clear.
