After years of international travel and activism, my journey turned inward when I sat my first 10-day meditation retreat in 2013. A year later, I found my way back to my long-lost love of art. But this time, I had a new understanding of the power of creativity to foster self-realization and discovery. I went from years of creative drought and denial that I was an artist at all to being a prolific painter motivated by the intrinsic joy of creating. Now I wish to share the gift that creativity has brought me with the world.
My art is all about connection - to the present moment, to myself, and ultimately, to others when they view it. I always work intuitively and trust the creative process to unfold without controlling it. I allow anything to inspire me, which is why I have such varied styles. I do not have any prescribed interpretation of my art, and simply wish for my work to be a portal for others to access their own inner world.
