CURRICULUM VITAE

Artist Statement:

In my paintings, I employ meditative stream of consciousness technique to allow pure energy to flow through me onto the page. I do not want to literally portray what is seen but strive to express in pattern form the way I see existence. Through multiple layers and techniques, I blend different states of continuousness and expressions into a seamless whole. I draw inspiration from within my soul, internal energy and life force to create the deep spiritual connection I feel with the planet. I hope to create work that will inspire others to see the beauty and surrealism that exists within the universe.
