About Me

Artist Statement

Art is a divine muse with no shortage of lessons. It is my greatest meditation - mirroring my weaknesses, attachments and ego while allowing me the space and opportunity grow. For every stroke on the canvas, there is a lesson, another leap of faith to take, another truth unveiled. 

 

Just as art has the power to help the individual, it can do the same for the collective conscious and bring the Earth to newer levels of health. It is a visual prayer for the world.  With each vision I manifest, I want to spread this medicine of creativity to others. I want to empower people to do what they have always wanted to do, in whatever form or shape that may manifest  be it singing, writing, sewing, or ect.
