As an artist, I thrive on moments in which I can creatively dance in my sacred space connecting the present moment with divine energy. In the midst of my creative moments, I transform into an instrument whose purpose is to express the beauty and positivity of our world.
I fell in love with the plasticity and forgiving characteristics of acrylic paint. Thick applications of paint and the addition of found objects such as recycled jewelry and papers are trademark elements of my work. I use these physical elements as a tool to invite the viewer in and to connect with the many layers of the creative process. Raw brushstrokes, organic shapes and symbols arise from the surface as I paint intuitively without sketches or forced objectives. As a result, my paintings become translations of my inner spirit, emotions, desires, and purpose.
Painted with a contemporary flare, ancient influences of Buddhism, other eastern philosophies and metaphysics are apparent in my artwork. Philosophical and spiritual authors have influenced my artwork and have become the backbone to my holistic lifestyle. Along with creativity, I have awakened to my innate healing abilities. As a result, my paintings and reproductions have become healing amulets that heal both myself and my patrons. As I move forward as an artist, I hope to awaken, heal, and connect others through painting and serve as a leader in creative empowerment.
Patrons have described my work as “Yoga for the Eyes. This phrase alludes to the union of the mind, body, and soul. Each brush stroke expresses the earnest, most lighted part of my soul. I hold great honor in each opportunity in which I can unlock a delicate balance of visual design with spiritual transcendence.
My young son and I live and paint in Phoenix, Arizona. We enjoy soaking up the beauty of the desert by hiking, biking and manifesting opportunities for fun.
