"When I'm painting time disappears, and nothing else exists except the canvas, the pigment and the joy of playing with the energy of is expressed in that moment.
I love to play with space and light, color and shadow. There is a quality of aliveness that I imprint in my work. Many people remark that my pieces give them healing energy. Can you sense the vibrance of color, and the luminosity that makes the pieces feel like they are in motion?"
I use a fluid medium that allows for many layers of intense combinations of color. I begin with fresh bold strokes, and after a period of drying, follow with light washes and deep rich tones. I repeat layer upon layer. The process results in a brilliance of pure pigment and creation of space and depth. Many times I finish with opalescent tints and gold details. Notice the movement, light, richness, and sparkle? Now, can you feel that in your body?"
