ARTIST STATEMENT: My work has always been a reflection of my inner world. It is my attempt to convey in a visual language the deeply spiritual and intuitive impressions I experience through meditation. I use my art to illustrate the visions I have during meditation. Before I start to make a body of work I will often meditate off and on for an extended period of time, losing myself in the visualizations and sensations. Having absorbed as much as I can of these, I sit down and visually process them through my artwork. In this way I hope to teach others what I’ve learned, to stimulate the viewer’s third eye, and ultimately to help the viewer feel more connected within themselves and the universe.
