Art as prayer. Art as spiritual activism. Art as healing transmission and sacred medicine. Art to enliven, ground, and inspire… Art, in this way, runs through my life as a creative, an activist, a healer, and a lover. I conceive and create my artwork in a prayerful state to transmit energy supporting personal growth, healing, and harmony, to bring an element of the sacred to any space, to offer blessings of peace and well-being into the world. Collectors often use my work as portals into meditation, or prayer, or to symbolize a powerful intention they hold for their lives.
I am primarily a painter. That said, I have worked 3-dimensionally choreographing bodies and designing theatrical sets, as well as conceiving and building an earthen home in Costa Rica. Through my BFA from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts’ Experimental Theater Wing and abundant exposure to international performing and visual arts, I gained an appreciation for a layered, earthy, quirky elegance interwoven with social commentary in innovative and unconventional ways. These themes have naturally emerged in my artworks (performance, mixed media paintings, and now sculpture) as have my long held passion for nature, meditation, embodiment, spirituality, and world cultures.
A lifelong environmentalist with a hyper awareness of the amount of waste humans produce, I love to incorporate repurposed materials into my artwork. It is my hope to inspire the viewer to consider the source of things.
