Mill Valley, CA
I engage in the creative process as a form of meditative prayer in which I practice letting go of control and allowing the stream of creativity to move through me. As a recovering control freak, I find this practice does wonders to heal the accumulated tension that goes with that, as well as opens up other ways of perceiving. As each painting unfolds, I relax my awareness to receive transmissions of color, form, movement, composition, and pattern and translate them onto the canvas. The finished pieces hold a resonance from this process and bring an uplifting and harmonious feeling into the spaces they live in.
