My creative process bridges, and somewhat amalgamates, both intuitive and conscience realities. My paintings do not imitate life, but harness the energy and the essence of life.
In life, we are conscience of present realities, yet travel forward with no actual conception of what to expect. My art making process seems to find itself in the same unpredictable reality. I surrender a degree of control, yet profoundly feel that my work does not fall into what could be defined as random or chance.
The process is as important as the finished piece. It is a spiritual experience. I channel a higher energy or light, in which the medium, the action, and the paintbrush are an umbilical between the soul, the essence, and that of the material world.
