As a visual artist I essentially view myself as a medium, naturally transferring energy. I paint on a daily basis from my studio, explore and develop new techniques of layering by working and experimenting with a variety of different media such as acrylics, oils, inks, collages with tools like comb knife or brush.
The study of the female forms which is predominant in my work emerges from meditation. I surround myself with nature, music, water, aquariums, and trees. They all contribute to the creative process. Through meditation my imagination allows me to visualize shapes: triangles, circles, animals, and people. My paintings represent what surrounds my life.
