ART is a dance with the cosmos. A way to make contact. To remember. To reclaim.

Creating ART for me is an energetic, visceral, down-to-earth way to attune to the universal energies and to extend that light to the consciousness of the planet.
At the peak of an art piece there is a magnetic pull that energizes & illuminates the senses and propels forth the creative force. As the light informs the senses, there is a mystical experience that imbues and inspires the direction of the art piece. Sometimes the light emerges with ease and grace from the get go, while at other times there is a deep dive into the watery depths of a birthing process. Sometimes the colors appear subtle and formless, while at other times bright & crisp.
At times the artist steps away from their craft to re-set, re-orient, re-invent. Yet, the pulse and buzz of the creative force continues to inspire and illuminate the path ahead. In the early winter of 2017,  the Thomas Fire swept through our home "Tree House" @ a hilltop meditation center in Ojai, California devouring all  my paintings, drawings, journals, and just about everything I owned. Rising like a phoenix, I accepted the challenge and embarked upon a new path that continues to amaze me every single day!
