Artist's Statement

MY JOURNEY AS A PAINTER IS FULLY INTERTWINED WITH MY JOURNEY AS A SHAMBHALIAN BUDDHIST. JUST AS THE PRACTICE OF MEDITATION IS AN EXPERIENCE OF OPENING TO NOWNESS AND TO AN APPRECIATION OF ARTFULNESS IN ONE'S LIFE, EACH MOMENT OF PAINTING CAN BE AN OPEN EXPERIENCE LIKE THE FIRST STROKE ON A BLANK CANVAS.
