Ecstatic movement. Sensual color. Spontaneous life energy harnessed through a paintbrush. Healing. Mesmerizing. Grounding. Heartfelt.
This is what I feel when I paint. This is what I hope my paintings impart to you. They are inspired by my 20 year practice of Chi Gung, ecstatic dance, and my fascination with the macro and microcosm of our Universe. Cells, super novas, and the resiliency of the human spirit stimulate my imagination and heart to create from a place of pure potential.
The abstract paintings are renderings of color, light, and movement that serve as visual representations of the inner landscapes of transformative processes our souls traverse over the course of life. They also represent the continuum of our own personal energies intertwined with Nature and the cosmic energies of the Universe. My intention is that they radiate positive life force energy into your space and serve as a painted prayer for you through life’s challenges.
The Thin Line series is a meditation on the moment. In the rush of daily life we rarely get to experience the fullness and peace of the present moment and the absolute quiet that occurs when we dip below the surface waves of thought and activity. Each line represents a conscious breath, a state of awareness and mindfulness within action. They are also inspired by my love of trees and the repetition and variety of form found in their bark. My hope is that they provide you with a sense of comfort and peace in our increasingly chaotic world.
