Before I create any work of art, I start with a meditation. It can be in the form of dance or quiet reflection. This allows me to clear my mind and paint intuitively and from a place of connectedness. My paintings are created using fluid acrylic paint. The excellent quality of the paint I use, allows me to overlay color in subtle transparencies that reveal several dimensions of energy and light.
I paint spontaneously and intuitively. I love painting in this style as it gives me an absolute creative freedom to blend, mix and layer colors to create an image that has never existed before. Although my style is free and spontaneous, there is an element of control from the method of using an un-stretched canvas. I manipulate and change the direction of the canvas and the flow of the paint, several times throughout the painting process.
I feel art should be more than just a decorative addition to a home or workspace. I feel that it should be able to change the energy of a room to create an environment that is pleasing and it is my hope that it evokes positive emotions in people. I always paint knowing that it is being painted for a certain person or family. Painting is not work for me, it is joyful and I want that to come through in my paintings. Each painting is created with love and healing energy for the future owner(s) of the piece.
