I am fortunate to be in a phase of life where I paint almost every day. I get to spend my time painting my thoughts, my discoveries and my stories. This is a completely enriching experience where I intensely feel a full range of emotions. It is good work, with continual rewards of exhilaration and a feeling of being deeply human.
I draw and paint from visions and fascinations; often starting in meditation or dreams. When I draw and paint I feel I am tuning in to a story. I follow my fascinations; internal connections are made and ideas are explored.
