Artist Statement

I believe art can give expression, strength, and freedom to the viewer. Art IS my meditation, and draws me to my core.

Throughout the years I have studied drawing, painting, manual exposure photography, jewelry craftsmanship, sculpture, framing, stained glass, and printmaking as well. Many different types of mediums appeal to me.  Pencils & ink when I'm on the go; watercolors on rainy days; sculpture to release tension; and oils when I need more time for an expression to develop.  I've been told that I would benefit to choose just one medium, but I've been unable to do that, as of yet.  In the future, I hope to learn how to work with bronze casting.

I do tend to visualize when creating art. I imagine, That it is as if a subject's soul radiance can reflect and change their environment with every breath. Nature, especially animals, are a prominent theme within my work because of this.  When creating I do my best to capture more than just the visual, but the subjects true energy flow.  Most of my art created in this way is signed, Soulscout.

My previous art studio, SacredMoon Studio, based out of Hawai'i has changed names to Soulscout Art Studio, and is now in Colorado Springs, Colorado.  I'm a Certified Grief Counselor and use art at times with my clients.  Please feel free to contact me directly for more information.

As we are all constantly changing and growing; my art represents postcards along my personal journey. Thank you so much for stopping by my page, I hope you found something that speaks to you.
