Artist Statement

I work from the inner world and practice a form of automatism, where I delve into unconscious realms to liberate core energy. Painted lines isolate energy patterns that morph into symbols that I explore for a time in a series. Forms take on metaphorical importance as they intertwine with my life path, the path of self-evolution.

I am interested in the bond between life experience and art, and in how life events can become catalysts that awaken the inner voice. My artwork brings hidden experience into daylight by giving it form and visibility. It brings the felt sense into consciousness where it can be pondered.
