My art practice is influenced by the intimate connection I have with the world around me. I create mixed media paintings on paper and canvas inspired by the energy, elements and cycles of nature. I use washes of watercolor, paints, pastels, and pencils to make abstract compositions that explore the relationship between the natural word and my spiritual life. Color is the poetic language I use to describe this connection. Most of all I paint to remember the beauty of being human in this vibrant universe.
