Artist's Statement

 Hello you. Have you ever slowed down to feel every sensation associated with your breath? Like how when you breathe in, there is almost a whirlpool of energy that is centered at the place between the eyes, and if you continue to focus your attention there, you can begin to dance with that energy as it travels through your skull. Our body is the real museum to wander around and get lost with-in. Any attempt at art making on my behalf is to honor the energies I've connected with, and have surrendered to while in this non mental space. Work ranges from site specific installations that brings the viewer into a new sense of engagement, to small delicate paintings that intimately explores a conjunction of philosophic/scientific/spiritual themes.  As my understanding grows, the forms of communication adapt to suit the ideas they contain. Art is the fresh breath of life. Celebrate. Enjoy.
