STATEMENT

My art is an expression of my spiritual life.

The artwork creates it self once the concept is in place.  My painting has been greatly influenced by Buddhist paintings and sculpture, prompting me to create

conceptual pieces that lead the viewer

past the mundane toward a place of stillness. Sometimes the imagery is driven by sound or mantra.

 

I work mainly with oil paint  and sometimes encaustic on a field of black. Working from dark to light creates almost a stain glass window effect evoking a sence of inner peace. My hope is to infuse the viewer with a moment of single pointed focus.
