Art is a living thing.


  • For me, art is a living thing.  My process involves great physicality, a full engagement of mind, body, and soul.  The paint flies, drips, swirls, is cajoled Into its existence, its being.  I have heard my pieces described as action feng shui.  I feel the energy channel through me on to the canvas and beyond.  There is no separation between the studio, the canvas, and my body.  Once finished, the energy held in each painting continues to vibrate with the passion of the moment in which it was created.  With their intricate patterns and textures, and overall impressionistic  overtones, the canvases suggest for me both a micro  and macrocosmic view.  Each piece vibrates with its own frequency of color and its own unique non-verbal field of communication.  At the same time, as a body of work, I believe these paintings speak or “sing” as one, a meditation on interconnection and harmony. 

My new work (2015) expands on this exploration of energy transmission with multi-dimensional groupings of canvaseslarge scale painting,  portraits and sculpture.  2015 exhibitons include "BLING: Art the Shines" and "REIMAGINED" at the Cornell Museum of Art and the upcoming RED DOT Miami in December.  2016 begins with my third solo exhibiton at the George Billis Gallery LA.
