I make art because I enjoy listening to the conversation between my heart and my soul. The words, feelings, and images that make their way on to the canvas are a result of this intimate exchange. Making art for me is a bit of an escape. Very much like taking a day at the spa, relaxing and releasing the stress I carry in my body, I relax into listening to the wisdom within me.
My body is my earth. Inside of my earth is a vast ocean of energy. Through art I dive into the ocean of life without fear of drowning. Painting and writing for me are deeply spiritual practices and I am committed to honoring that which calls from within. Through honoring and intending creativity I have ultimately transformed my life.
Transformations however big or small are shifts inside of my consciousness that hold the seeds of wisdom, compassion, passion, and love for others. When I nurture these seeds they grow and bloom into beautiful life onto the canvas.
I strongly believe that everyone has this power. Everyone is a creative. We are all artists because we can all manifest, produce and create by using our imaginations. We can make real so many things and bring forth the invisible. My hope is that at some point all humans can find the “art” that moves them towards deep self-transformation because in doing so the world is uplifted.
As for my painting, I am unaware of a particular style. I have not been formally trained and my ten-year old self likes that! For me art is not about what it looks like, art is about how it makes me feel. Art feeds my soul.
I love bold colors and I am mostly drawn to creating faces of women. I make every effort to infuse the power of femininity in my paintings. I believe that the gaze of a strong feminine image stirs my soul and propels me forward. I believe in the Divine Feminine as a symbol of love, nurturing, passion, sensuality and strength. I often find that my paintings embody one of these characteristics.
I paint for myself because, selfishly, it makes me feel good. I paint for women because I love them. I paint for the world because it a gift from God and Goddess.
If I could tell the world anything, it would be: There is MAGIC HERE! There is PEACE HERE! Come paint with me, I will show you!
