"What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter." Henri Matisse
When I create my paintings, I enjoy the silent process of the present moment. I am inspired to create what tends to be dismissed- the essence of a feeling or the ineffable qualities in nature. My paintings reveal peace through balance as I work in the abundant state of imagination and dreaming. Reoccurring themes can be found in my work from circles, botanicals, and patches of vibrant color to pure abstraction. Creating art brings me immense joy. My paintings are a celebration of life.
