In my work I explore the possibility of a place of peace by offering to make sense of the world's dualities of joy and suffering. Using form, texture, composition and color I seek to express a visual evolution with the contrast of disruption and calm. Darkness flows into the light, excitation transforms itself into composure and the result is balanced energy.
The creative process does not end with the physicality of the painting, but is continued and enhanced through the eyes of each beholder into the creation of thoughts and emotions it brings out in them; this magic dance of connection is proof that we are not separate.
I work with acrylic paint; gold, silver and copper leaf, charcoal and oil pastels.
