My soul purpose is as a catalyst for transformation.
As a practitioner of the healing arts, what’s been cultivated and distilled from 25 years experience working with numerous healing modalities, has blended and merged into the artwork.
As a visual starting point I draw inspiration from urban surroundings, the crumbling splendor of a half torn down apartment in Barcelona, painted over graffiti on concrete walls under LA freeways, an engaging soundtrack or an intention setting meditation can all become resources.
Gesture, line, shape, collage, and a variety of palettes, bring life to canvas, panel, or paper. With support of the grid for structure, intuitive marks begin the dialogue. A hierarchy emerges and decisions are made regarding what it essential and what must be let go. Layering and removing paint, adding and covering line, the conversation continues until a particular frequency resonates and there is a sense of balance and connection.
The act of painting has been about letting go and surrendering to what wants to come through. The work holds potential for trasnsformational impact. I activate the canvas, the canvas activates me , allowing for subtle or dramatic internal changes. The result is a vibrational shift, raising frequency, for those who resonate with it.
