ARTIST STATEMENT

My paintings reference the teachings of Transformative Art.  With a focus on light and energy, each spontaneous stroke serves as a vehicle for healing and channeling peace.  My approach reflects my formal background as a plein air painter, however my work today, in part, encompasses the style of abstract expressionism. Using metal leaf and oils on canvas my process is emotionally transformative and spiritually expansive.

Energy flows onto the canvas, emotion takes a unique form. My process feels unbounded, limitless. I have discovered that in this place I am working at a soul level. There is no duality.  Prior to this shift I did not know that such artistic freedom was possible.

I believe that art offers healing. Both to the artist and the viewer.  When I connect with a deeper part within myself as I paint, I believe that this translates to those who enjoy my work.  My hope is that you unite with your own inner consciousness as a result of experiencing my process. Art offers connection. By exposing my most vulnerable self in each creation, my intention is to dissolve any imaginary boundaries separating us all.
