Painting, for me, is an exercise in the transmutation of light and energy into a three dimensional plane. The reaction of colors and action mark-making are intended to transport the viewer to a realm of undulating vibrational rhythms. Each painting represents my journey to a plane of consciousness that guides my brush and favors circular momentum. I offer my heart and hands to move in tandem with the consistent flow of intelligent infinity.  Inspiration is ever present and universal for those who choose to witness it. To create and to be a creative is the highest form of reciprocation to our creator.
