My expressive work is the discernible manifestation of my core language. These works are personal expressions of my spiritual journey…visual prayers…poetic expressions of unseen places, where the divine meets human, heaven meets earth, spirit meets spirit, and the invisible is made visible…a yearning for heavenly language, a grasping for the divine, a searching for purpose and meaning, for connectedness, for intimacy…a longing to inspire hope, faith, healing, and transformation…and an invitation to come alongside the journey… Let your heart and spirit go where perhaps you’ve not gone before…where the unseen is calling, the invisible is made known.
I convey the emotional essence of each painting to an observable platform by way of a painter’s lexicon – color, form, space, texture, line, movement. I often start with music to help me disengage from the day to day noise in order to unearth the innermost lifeblood of my being. The first layer of much of my work is a unique personal language that represents a dialogue with a higher creative energy…my personal prayer language. The next several layers are a visible fusion of this emotive exchange between myself, the painting, and this divine creative energy. My hope is that I’ve created a painting that feels authentic and impactful for myself and for those who view it.
