Painting takes me “out of my mind”, where events no longer create my reality, awareness is the creator. My actual truth surfaces through imagination, surprises, and vulnerable exploration. Calculated analysis of events has no place here. I love this place…. I am driven to embrace change as the flow of my creativity. Feelings are ever changing, and it is my desire to create and share a space where you, the viewer, can get lost and allow your imagination to create your reality. My paintings connect what is recognizable not by the name or identity of it’s subject matter, instead by the emotions and familiar relationships felt in their stories. Painting is a need I love.
