My art and my life are intertwined. My desire is to learn how to live in the moment, how truly be there, and to search for awareness. It is my state of consciousness from the feelings of appreciation, humbleness, and interconnectedness with nature of universe that I strive to express in the creation of art - my process of meditation. Maybe that is the reason why my work is so diverse - from landscapes to abstracts to fashion collages. There is no mandated subject for an artist. We are all one, no matter how different we may seem. I am in awe of the gift of life with all the challenges that it presents. Nothing should be taken for granted. Understanding this makes me happy and gives me wonderful energy to deal with my busy, noisy days, my family, friends and people around me. I would like to share with you the moments of enlightenment where life flow creates beauty, healing, and inevitably, hope.
My favorite artists include Klimt, E. Schiele, C. Monet, Mark Chagall, G. Richter, R. Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly.
I am attracted (but not adopted) to the philosophy of Confucius, Jiddu Krishnamurti, and philosophical "idealist” Deepak Chopra.
