ARTIST STATEMENT

Art has the power to be transformative, to rearrange our vision of the world and to lead us to a greater understanding of the world we share, and those we share it with. With organic shapes, fluid light and shadow, I create universal symbols of unity, wholeness and infinity. Art - the beauty and the rawness of it - connects us to one another. The meandering lines I paint are like the borders that separate us; they become bridges to the next steps we take, to the journey we take together. What we choose to see and believe will determine how we live, not just where we live. Let’s build the puzzle of our life on this planet with care and empathy.
