The painting process for me is one of discovery. I always look for a new challenge in approaching painting, pushing the limits of my comfort zone.
My approach is to be as spontaneous as possible when initially laying down the paint. Then I let the painting guide me to the next step refining the work as I go. It’s all about honoring the process and not forcing. For that reason I work on several paintings at the same time. A joyful aspect of the creative process, for me, is mixing colors. I love to explore color vibrations, and the juxtaposition of one color against the other.
My inspiration comes from the energy and perfection of nature. Travel to different rich environments and cultures influences my work. My work reflects a collection of remembered experiences, both of my outer and inner worlds. In the midst of image making, I feel that I am in the flow of a force greater than myself.
