Creation. Inspiration. Meditation.
When I get into my creative space and get my hands into art materials, the medium speaks to me and evolves as it comes to life. I don’t always know exactly what I am going to create until I create it, as my creations seem to take on a life of their own. I love to work in different mediums and sizes from miniature to large scale. I find art to be a form of meditation. I enjoy juxtapositions of soft backgrounds and geometric shapes, architecture and organic forms. I believe that the gift of art is precious and it is meant to be shared.
