About The Artist
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.
