Artist Statement:  I love that art has no boundaries and that anything is possible. 

About the ArtistLily is an accomplished, self-taught, visionary artist currently residing in Southern California. Her art work is transformative and filled with the intangibles of her emotions through color, movement and luminosity. Her paintings are charged with positive energy, while expressing an overwhelming sense of tranquility. Viewers are transported to mystical, light filled, other-worldly dreamscapes, where they become the story teller, as they linger inside the images, seeking answers to their own life’s questions.

Her works are influenced by the Fusionart style of painting, which is founded in European painting technology. What is poured onto her canvas is the emotional and spiritual energy of the artist, fusing with whatever is longing to be expressed. When viewers gaze into her works, they are drawn into an expansion of that creative exchange to feel and share the artistic expression of what is revealed. It becomes a living transaction, a relationship and heartfelt connection. Her works are fused with acrylic paint and mixed media; she uses rags, hands-on painting, dry brush and glazing techniques to carve out the images that take residence on her canvas; which have been said to "transcend the human plane."

Since 2010, Lily’s images have been juried into humanitarian artist calls such as "The Peace Project" which is curated by the Whole 9 Gallery in Los Angeles. She donates her images every year to raise funds to elevate world peace, assist humanity and build communities. ,  

Her "earthly" art won over the juror panel at "Sustainable Silicon Valley" Art Expo", held at NASA Research Center in Mountain View, CA, which called on artists to submit images for planetary sustainability; she has been invited back every year since 2013 to have her images included in the ongoing building of the vision for planetary solutions.

Lily has also received multiple awards from Light, Space and Time Gallery in recognition of her unique images and other-worldly creations.  The gallery has also honored her accomplishments as a "Featured Artist".

For the past few years, Lily has been actively curating art exhibitions, in Orange County, CA, consulting with artists and galleries to provide instruction on the placement of art, social media and the "Business of Art".  Lily currently offers Art Business Consultant Services, go to!art-business-consultant-orange-county/cub3 for services and pricing.

Her works have been exhibited and continue to be exhibited and collected across the USA. To see more of Lily’s works, visit her website at
