In the beginning, I would only paint when I found myself overwhelmed with negative emotions, and it showed in my artwork. I knew I could not continue down this path so I began to visit gallery openings to speak with other artists to understand the reasoning behind their art. From speaking with them, I realized that I had to understand myself before I could express it to the world. With some great guidance, I came across a few Buddhist teachings that opened my mind and third eye. I began to meditate daily, read more, and finally overcame what was holding me back, myself.
Within in time I became comfortable with my art, explaining it, and being able to paint freely with others around. My art has become an expression of my life through unconstrained movements with my tools and inspiration from music. Each painting represents moments, emotions, and thoughts that I am faced with in life, ones I believe many people experience. I allow that energy to flow onto the canvas to express my message of life's journey with others.
