Artist Statement

Each painting becomes a journey of exploration—of self, of the mysteries of love, of nature and the cosmos. I disappear into the unknown seeking what will be revealed or undone; new ways of being, releasing limiting thoughts and feelings, new ways of applying texture and colour. Playing, scraping, blending, adding, taking away. Layers, welcoming drips, accidents.

When I paint I open to the infinite field of the hidden realms. I ask to be a conduit for grace fueled by love, wisdom, and healing. Most of all, I listen, I feel, and aim to express the inexpressible through colour and strokes. It is a very magical, rich, and empowering process.

My inspiration is the ground beneath my feet, how it feels when I breathe it into my body. It is the wind and how it feels caressing everything it touches. It is the illuminating beauty of the sea, the sky, the trees, flowers, and mountains.

I see my role as an artist to enliven, inspire and illuminate during these intense times of change. My desire is for people to feel this invisible embrace of beauty in my paintings and be infused with its vibrancy and grace.
