I created Crystal Illumination Art™ to bring the transformative quality of illumination, light and color to the human experience and celebrate its ability to inspire, heal and nourish our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
My spiritual path contributes to my work, which I create from a place of love, peace and compassion. For me, art is healing andplays an important role in all aspects of my life. Having studied and worked with energy and alternative healing, I have always been fascinated and aware of the effects of color and light in psychosomatic and neurophysiological medicine and have chosen to incorporate this through my light paintings for healing.
The magic of refractory and reflective light emanating through prisms of crystals that stimulate the sensory experience evokes a visual dimension that captivates and envelops viewers as they experience my original concept of light as art. Suspendedcrystals rotate in space producing colorful, aesthetically pleasing, kaleidoscopic effects which result in a rich, visually soothing, healing and inspiring experience that morphs light into art.
It's incredible to watch the expressions in the faces of the viewers as they are drawn into the installations and the ebbs and flows of the patterns in the light paintings. People of all ages are mesmerized and touched in their own unique way. Whether it is a young child with ADD or a stressed out corporate executive, the experience appears to take them into a quieted world of their own.
In our unsettled post modern-age, I know that this is my gift to my audience. Each painting is custom designed to meet the needs of the commission and the environment in which it is installed. Through meditation and sharing with my clients, it is as if I become an instrument and my art flows from within me to them.

I am delighted to share this unique experiential art concept with you. Art is a universal language. It is my hope that you will be touched by the love and energy which is transmitted to you through my unique art form, Crystal Illumination Art™. It is my aspiration to continue lighting the way for people to experience this transformative sensory art experience.
