Artist Statement

Abstract art is infinitely inclusive and intuitive -we all see it from within the confines of our own lives and experiences and therein find our own unique meaning. There is a metamorphosis in the creation of art - I never start a painting with a vision of what it will be because it becomes what it is meant to be. I am the conduit for the magic that happens.

My work is a journey of authentically honoring my time here on earth and connecting with the elemental experience of being human. It is perfectly imperfect, as we all are. And therein lies our beauty.

Rich paints and lush brushwork create visual poetry; art is a fundamental connection and conversation between the artist and her materials. When I paint, my goal is to get out of my head and into that deep and resonant space of soul, where we are all connected. My goal is for each person to find his or her own meaning in my work; to connect in a way as unique as we each are.

Creating art is vulnerable and honest. Releasing my art into the world is an act of vulnerability, courage, and love. My hope is that it speaks to you within your own life and helps you to tell your story, as creating it helps me to tell mine.
