ARTIST STATMENT

 

Without imagination there can be no creativity, imagination is the playground of creativity, and the playfield of transcendent experience. Without the imagination and the mind, there is no accounting for creative experiences    ~ Suzy Adra

 

I have been making art for a long time, probably ever since I could use a pen or pencil.  I continue to pursue opportunities to learn and grow.

My creative process is organic, and rarely preconceived. I have had traditional training in still life, and figure drawing, and I find myself drawn more to the surreal, and fantastic. I create abstract art that flows from my psyche, sometimes using perspective, and three dimensions. I am not concerned with perfecting every mark I make because I see beauty in the imperfections.

I am inspired by nature, mysticism, symbolism, and the sacred. I used to mostly work with acrylics, and ink, and have recently been using oils.  I sometimes use gold leaf in following with the illuminated manuscripts of antiquity.

My art is a tool for self-catharsis. I also hope that whoever views my work will be touched, moved, and transformed in some way.

I produce limited edition signed prints of my work every now and then. Follow me on social media to be the first to know when such an offer is available.

I am available to lead painting workshops, and would love to create custom art, murals, and portraits for you.

All the art featured here is available for purchase. Inquiries through my contact form.
