For me, painting is a pilgrimage – a journey into the mystery of creation and, through that sacred path, ultimately a journey into the deepest reaches of my soul. If in my painting I am successful in reaching my goal, then I see it as a bridge into you.
I work to capture both what is seen and what is not seen. With intuitive leading the way, when on location I allow what I feel to override what I see. With years and years of classical training under my belt my hand can easily follow my heart creating a work of art that not only represents the scene but also allows the soul of the place to come forth.
Years of study with shamans has sharpened my understanding of energy, enhancing my ability to capture the invisible bringing life to each canvas. Through color, lines and brushstrokes I portray feelings that often cannot be put into words.
