Artist Statement

For me painting is a spirit life sustaining meditative practice. an essential exercise in intuitive visual interaction with line, form, color, movement, and vibration. My work is intended to be a mind, body, spirit landscape playground and is produced both from unconscious meditation and conscious ideal. As a hopeful dreamer it is my desire that as you gaze into these various hallucinatory mirror clouds that you perceive something of yourself and rise completely in love. seamless, unnamable, it returns to the realm of nothing. form that includes all forms, image without an image, subtle, beyond all conception. ~the tao...14...Lao Tzu
