    Artist Statement

    Color is my soul connection. The female figure is the theme of my work. My body and unconscious mind guide me through my creative process.

    When moved by color or gesture, I notice striking shifts in the sensations of my body and opportunities to connect with my creativity emerge. A process of letting go surfaces when I trust myself enough to release the critical internal voices. At these times, it’s as if I embody a life force bigger than myself; empowering moments truly beyond words or explanation. It fills me with exhilaration and gratitude.
