Statement
In all of my work, art and yoga are intertwined.  Together, they are journey and destination, process and path in the creation of my art work.  They are the way I cultivate intuition and my personal path toward awareness and insight. 
I choose symbolic images as an invocation, layering color and more images in order to document that challenge me to explore and reveal complex narratives, the inner logic of an image.
For me, a successful work of art, is not perfect.  It aims to leave you wanting, to serve as a provocation, a doorway leading to the next and the next.  Mystery, timelessness and lushn evocative surfaces are qualities I strive to create in my art work. Luckily, I use a process of techniques and elements of evocative surfaces, inviting drips, smears and other beautiful mishaps.
