For me, painting is a journey into inner realms of intuition and imagination. Awed by the mystery of how creation occurs, I enter the process with curiosity, seeking a sense of freedom, aliveness and presence.

My influences are first and foremost everything I see, feel, dream and experience. Before I begin painting, I take long hikes in nature and connect with the land. The spacious soulfulness of the desert landscape is like a blank canvas that invites color and inspires imagery.

Rather than capturing reality with my brushes, I prefer to express the hidden wonder, the organic exuberance and poetry as well as the stillness. I paint from the inside out, translating emotions into colors, textures and symbols. Acrylic is my medium of choice because it dries fast and is ideal to create layers. As a colorist, I like to make bold statements. The way colors interact, overlap and shade into each other, creating fluidity and wholeness delights me. 

The painting process involves many inner stages. Uncertainty, fear, trust, perseverance, doubt and breakthrough are all part of the journey to find the elusive "zone", that intuitive space where everything flows, colors choose themselves and painting happens.

Art is a way to connect with myself and the world, teaching me to live life in a more authentic way and to honor each moment. As I align with my soul purpose and the greater forces of nature, creativity and abundance manifest organically.
