There are moments in our lives when we experience awakenings - moments when we know more than we knew a moment before. One of the things we may know is that we are one with the universe - that the ebb and flow of need and abundance in our lives represents our seasons, just as clearly as the first sprout of grass in spring or last amber leaf in autumn signify the cyclical and ever-changing path of nature.
This realization is what inspires my work. Painting, for me, is not only a form of expression, but also one of transformation. It is through this journey to the core of creativity that I discover my own.
