"Art for me is a practice of alchemy, not only with the mixed mediums but alchemy of the soul…with art I am constantly processing, healing, transforming and transmuting. When I create a painting my goal is to give the viewer a portal or gateway into an otherworldly realm, to give them a piece of my interpretation of the sacred space that I have experienced. To find their own sacred space within, to listen for the subtle but potent message that art can teach us about ourselves. When we paint with an open heart and mind we see into who we have the potential to become and we put it all on the line for the world to see…silently."
