My work attempts to connect people through their similar experiences. I create a visual field that invites people from all paths to partake in an intimate journey of transforming pain into acceptance. Through this acceptance, compassion for the self can be found and with this comes compassion for others. I have found this process to be at the core of many spiritual practices and a basic need of all people. I embrace it in my own work.
I have chosen to develop a common visual language of natural imagery to communicate about the common goal of personal development. The comfort of familiar elements appear as well as an opening to the unknown abstracted space. Thick, raw and intentionally composed marks build upon thin layers of wash to provide depth of texture and application of paint as a sensual experience in the moment.
