Artist Statement

My art is a counterpoint to the “horrors of the world".  It is colorful, with flowing images that are intriguing and complex.  The reactions that I get from people are “They’re beautiful and I get lost in them.”  “I feel so joyful!”  “When I feel low, I look at your art and it lifts my spirits.”  “They’re healing."

My intention is to bring positive feelings to people’s lives, to awaken their joy for life.  We deal with so many difficult burdens that I love to help people feel better and shift into positive feelings when they interact with my art.  When we touch the beauty within us, and the humanity, we touch a great source of power.  Beauty is very powerful.  I want my art to remind people of the beauty within themselves and in the world around them.

When we experience beauty, the positive energy of it, we feel enlivened, empowered and filled with hope and a sense of possibility.  It helps us move forward in our lives to accomplish what we most desire.  With so many people beaten down by illness, lack of money or other circumstances, we need beauty in many forms to help us keep going.

My art is a reflection of my true voice.  It is important that we are in touch with our voices, that we speak our truth.  And an aspect of my truth is that beauty is empowering and comes through in the art that I create.
