"Being an Artist is not what I do, but who I am and how I approach life. Every new situation demands a creative approach for the best solution, and that comes from an unbridled imagination. Albert Einstein said, “I am enough of an artist to draw freely from the imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” That is true!! Everything that is done or made INITIALLY begins in the imagination of the person who does or creates. Education teaches how humanity resolved life issues historically – imagination reveals our future!
Since childhood I created art to express my thoughts and emotions. Each piece is a Visual Reflection of my Spiritual Journey, images I see in my dreams or during quiet times of meditation and prayer. I distill these visions into a cohesive image that symbolizes the eternal and spiritual aspects of life; using abstract symbolism combined with earthly and cosmic elements.
These pieces transport viewers into other dimensions of life and spirituality. Cosmic and earthly locations combine to celebrate the inner world and the physical places we inhabit. The surreal environments and juxtaposed elements induce a thoughtful and curious approach to the images. Together they create an atmosphere that is conducive to introspective meditations while thrilling the eyes and soul. Poetic writings for select pieces further illuminate aspects of the vision to stir hearts and minds."
