Artist Statement

I am fascinated with abstraction and the way colors interact with each other. One reason I love to work abstract is that the ideas and images in my paintings are coming from somewhere mysterious inside myself. In other words, instead of trying to represent something I’m seeing outside myself, I’m attempting to listen to my intuition to create something from my imagination. In doing this, I feel that I’m connecting to my spirituality. Also, I try to feel joy in the act of creation and I hope that my work brings some joy to the people who view it.

Also, I am interested in art as a means of healing. I believe that when people create, they are activating a very vital and healing part of themselves. I like the quotation from George Braque: “Art is a wound turned to light.” Maybe art doesn’t always have to spring from a wound, but I agree that art can help us tremendously in healing the places where we’ve been hurt.

Peace on Earth.
