I create from the uniqueness of my soul,
trying to keep my mind free of dogmatic images.
My goal is to paint part of my unexpressed self.
I do this by layering many translucent, vibrant hues,
which create new spectrums, shapes, and compositions.
My work is organic, and flows into unpredictable changes.
It is geometric and balanced.
I don’t want to impose preconceived notions
on the viewer.
My wish is, for one to let go of every thought,
clear the mind, and just absorb.
I want the viewer to connect with each piece,
and feel a mutual, visual heartbeat.
It’s a gift to be able to share my talents.
