As early as I can remember I have been drawing and painting.
It was a comfort during a difficult childhood and my quiet meditation now. My early work focused on portraits of loved ones and gradually evolved into colorful abstracted faces. From that, my work matured into a visual expression of the non-visual; music, energy, thoughts, and emotion.
I am very meticulous and meditative in my process. Similar to the creation of sand mandalas by the Buddhists, I express my gratitude and sincere appreciation for life and love while I work. New ideas blossom from this reactionary process where I try to balance the polarity of nature and the human experience; often combining geometric patterns with organic shapes and cool colors with warm.
