When I paint, I feel like a choreographer pausing the dance of shadow, light and color at the precise moment where all of them are in their full expression. To find that full expression of each component of the dance, I use a combination of Master’s and Mische technique in my oil paintings.
Through my art, I explore the web of psychology and spirituality. Once I’ve become inspired by an idea, say an emotion, a story, or a philosophy, I fully engage with it’s healing power. Through meditation, my intuitive senses, and the void of the painting process, I ask the inspiration what it wants to say to the world and then paint the answer.
