My artwork is an expression of a deep call for healing, for connection, for truth. I work with oils, acrylics, and a variety of mixed media. My exploration has taken me from colorful interpretative landscapes into the realm of abstract expressionism. My art is characterized by movement, rich and vibrant colors, and bold brushstrokes. Because I paint my healing process, often times, chaos and calm are interwoven together on the canvas. Rather than focusing on the end result, I juxtapose elements that show the unfolding of growth and transformation. Abstract art gives me the freedom to trust and surrender to the process without the need to conform to a set of rules or expectations. It gives me the space to own my journey and to share it authentically.
My life is a journey of continuous learning. Painting reminds me to stay humble and to honor the creative expression of my soul. When I can gracefully surrender to the Universe without expectation, the art just flows through me.
