Painting for me is a spiritual experience. I seek to explore the creative mind and spirit through the expression of abstract painting and the language of color. Inspired by the inner spiritual desire to create, I work intuitively as I explore color, movement, form, and layering elements. Each piece is a reflection of experience, time and what I’m exploring at that moment. I believe art can change the way we think, the way we feel, the way we connect.
