My work is the result of my personal search. Through learning to draw and paint, I began to visualize patterns of energy. Using paint, pastel, pencil, clay and wood, I try to depict this discovery.
With minimal light/dark contrast and freed from shadow, my colors radiate luminous energy. Patterns of juxtaposed rhythm, lack of symmetry and no horizon create the illusion that my images vibrate in a dynamic process of change.
I intend to express the vitality and beauty of the ongoing process of becoming: a face expresses what is hidden beneath the skin, a flower what is contained within its petals. These inner realities reveal the past flowing into the present into the future; everything is connected and emanates from a single source; images, lines, patterns, geometric shapes, rhythms and colors are fused into a single flexible fabric.
My work is visual but also emotional. I hope viewers sense the visual vibrations as music, a dance, a mirror, or possibly a glimpse into a vital way of thinking about the world surrounding us, supporting us.
