In some ways, my life has been about four things. Art, spirituality, nature and the well-being of humankind. It all began with my first mentor who was a well known wildlife artist. From that point on I have never gone more than 3 days without painting.
For me, making a painting is like falling in love. My work tends to be bold, and a lot of passion and emotion comes along with the process. Most of the time I have no idea what I'm about to paint. But it is the journey into the uncertainty, and it is awakening of the heart.
I'm honored in that my paintings and my work have been commissioned by people all around the world. I host a weekly podcast called, Behind the Art Inspiration, a sneak peek into the studio practices of all types of artists. Conversations for collectors who love to listen to the banter and creative process of international artists.
My life is simple. I have grown two sons. I live by the water. I host these really cool and unusual SOULSCAPE retreats. Soulscape is an escape for your soul with sound, yoga, art and a place where you can reconnect with lost parts of yourself. Parts that may have lost their voice during all of the troubles in our world lately.
For as long as I can remember I have loved painting, travel, nature and reflection. My wellspring of passion helps me to create beautiful artwork and art experiences. Just as the poet captures beauty in his writing, I capture it in my artwork.
Much of my work begins while traveling to beautiful vistas. I then add finishing touches in my studio. There is an imaginative and magical element to my work. It has been called hauntingly beautiful. I enjoy studying ideas and learning about different topics through creating series paintings.
I believe that when I paint and when I paint with others, there is healing and transformation that happens. This transformation is one toward empowerment.
