“I am a visual person… sights, colors, shapes and aromas evoke images in my mind. Creating a meaningful work of art begins with the visualization of these images and culminates in the manifestation of those visions in the physical realm. My painting is also a form of meditation.During the creative process, I mentally “feel” textures and colors. Watercolor and ink on rice and watercolor paper provide the perfect vehicle for the fusion of Western and Eastern influences, as well as the blend of fusion of ancient and modern motifs that is the wellspring of my individual style.

The specific symbolism represented in my works flows from my travels, my studies in art history, anthropology, Asian philosophy and my own personal mythology. Sources for my subject matter include: indigenous cultures, landscapes, dreams, legends, beach combing and museum visits, among others. Inspiration is a vision …I “become” my chosen subject as I paint it. In this way, I evoke the essence of my subject by enveloping myself in the nature of its “being.”

Through my awareness of the spirit of nature — the subtle energies and abounding beauty in animals, plants, mountains and ocean — my paintings communicate the everyday miracles in the world around us. It is artwork intended not only for the eye, but also for the mind and heart.”
