"I have always felt that what is seen in the physical world, veils a mystical, unseen world that has more depth than we can perceive. I seek to integrate these two realms through my work. The unseen realm is a world of unity, where light and shadow merge and imagination reigns."
"Art becomes a form of prayer for me leading me to a place of renewal. When I paint quickly, the brush strokes charge the painting with energy and a sense of movement."
"I paint in oils now, almost exclusively. Colour is a powerful and emotionally evocative force—and I love pulling the light out of darkness; it symbolizes the world of duality through which we walk."
"We all embody an exquisite, divine spark that resides deep within. It radiates the light and beauty of who we really are. Every created thing carries the signature of its creator. Through portraiture, I seek to connect with this deeper essence and bring it forward, in all its subtle awareness."
"Through art, inmates explored the power of their thoughts, how imagination creates reality, and how art can transform conflict and more."
"My Mother was an artist and I was surrounded by art at an early age. We often painted together and the combination of her gentle nature with her bohemian free spirit inspired me. We are all wired to create and this is most clear in childhood."
"We all have unique gifts to share and recognizing these gifts, allows us to gain understanding of our purpose. The first clue is what do we really enjoy? In my journey as an artist, I sought what inspired me... but mostly I simply painted and pursued what I loved."
