Painting is a portal to the sanctuary of my heart, a meditative practice. Through the act of painting, I create imagery that is inspired, informed by, and mirrors my journey as a human. I find it a replenishing and forgiving activity from where to enter a dynamic relationship between creation and destruction . . . there are no ‘mistakes’ in art, only transformation.
I work mainly with acrylics and watercolor pastels in layers that often incorporate collage elements. While canvas and wood are my preferred surfaces to create on, I paint mostly on paper in the pages of my art journals. It is in the sanctum of these journals that ideas for works on wood and canvas churn.
