My process of creating art is deeply intuitive and spiritual. It is rooted in metaphysical principles about the power of art to serve as a gateway to the higher self and transformation. Combing structure and chance, I work with acrylics, brushes, and palette knives to create intricate, multi-layered paintings. My work is abstract though it often alludes to landscapes, textures, and patterns. Each its own unique world of remembered experiences, spaces, and emotions. These abstractions allow a continuous dialogue between the viewer and the painting, adding meaning and vision, both conscious and subconscious.
