Through my own life journey and my meditations, I am personally always seeking to grow, evolve and change so many of the themes I paint, represent my experiences with that: letting go, new beginnings, healing journeys, hope, home and the joys of abundance. All inherently positive things. The quietness of my own mind is my inspiration and then I find, and take my own, reference material to support my idea and build it up. It is never static but a slowly shifting idea of what I wish to create that evolves over days and weeks of thought, preparations and work. Each painting is a surprising journey, a process, with the idea unfolding little by little. It is never formulaic, or technique driven. I am always surprised at where I end up. The excitement of this constant creative unfolding keeps me engaged in the artistic process and it is why I continue to paint.
I feel the inherent energy of a painting - the energy it was created in, stays with the painting. A positive, hopeful and beautiful image brings light and positive energy into a room. I wish to share my hopeful world view and experiences, with others, to bring a sense of freedom, joy, and yes abundance, to their everyday lives.
