​​​​Artist Statement       

My intention as an artist is to take a flat surface with edges and corners and transform it into and endless interactive field of energy. This energetic field helps to transmit information that is recognized by the individual on both the conscious and subconscious levels. My hope is to create an interactive experience that extends beyond time and space allowing each color combination to spontaneously communicate to the individual a memorable experience.  If the painting is a success the individual feels the affect of the painting’s energetic impact. The color combinations are chosen spontaneously and many times the unique combinations of color that emerge surprise me.  At times the colors pull me so strongly I’ve wondered who’s painting the piece, the paint or me? Along the way I’ve learned to trust the process.   I was inspired early in my career by collage.  I like to include the qualities of collage in my approach to the blank canvas. I enjoy allowing some form of “not knowing” to be included in the process. My greatest joy as a painter is to push beyond what I know into the “not knowing”. I recognize the powerful impact and harmony that is created by the unique color combinations that emerge from “not knowing”.  My goal as an artist is to move the collector emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. I hope my work helps to bring the collector to a place that encourages more imagination, inspiration, and harmony in their life. I’m passionate about how the creative process brings healing to individuals and society. I received my education in art and the creative process at UCSD.  I’m a Reiki Master Teacher and I’ve been studying energy medicine for a decade. My abstract painting is an extension of my healing work. Many of them are considered “Yantras”.

Abstract Vibrational Paintings/Color Field 

Each of the modern paintings are created with the intention of shifting and altering the surrounding environment. There's something unique about paintings that have been painted from an inspiration formed by vibration. Allowing the vibration to direct the flow of color and placement on the canvas does have its unique rewards. As a Reiki Master Teacher I've been working with energy and vibration for a decade. It brings me great joy to use my canvas as a vibrational transmitter. Just like a radio station I can tune in and play the desired tune across the network for all to enjoy.

Figurative Paintings

I think what makes my canvas wall art figurative paintings unique is my approach to painting the figure. My goal as an artist is to allow the negative space to inform the figure. My use of dots or pointillism is intentional. I believe it communicates energy forming into matter. There's something very meditative about painting in this way. I love how the brain likes to connect the dots to form an image that our mind desires to see. Each collector experiences the figure differently. This creates a very personal experience that touches each person individually.
