"The reason I create and make art is because I don't know how not to."
I am an intuitive, mixed media artist and a pescetarian (a vegetarian who will eat fish).
The reason I create and make art is because I don't know how not to.
I have an insatiable curiosity and drive to know more about almost everything. When I paint I am a brave warrior Goddess painting from one idea or brush stroke to the next. Inspiration can come from dreams, connecting with other creative people (especially my students!), seed pods, rocks, nature, *wabi sabi, many things.
My artwork represents part of the answer to the questions we all have about forgiveness, healing, empowerment, connection, love, magic and mystery.
I am an intuitive painter and creator. When I paint or create I step away from my ego and my analytical mind and swim, dance, celebrate and indulge in universal creative energy. As I paint I am often in tune with my internal dialog, the questions that arise and then the answers offered as solutions for my paintings. Its quite magical and I love it!
Creating means everything to me. I am so fortunate to be able to follow my passions and my bliss. My soul purpose in creating is to reveal and share the extraordinary in the ordinary, to awaken power and to dance in magic and mystery.
Thank you for supporting my dream.
* wabi-sabi is the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection and profundity in nature, of accepting the natural cycle of growth, decay, and death.
