My art has always been about evolving from the unknown towards a concrete work of art by applying the awareness that derives from the action of painting itself. It’s a style that I’ve been using and rediscovering for over 20 years. Around 2012, I started meditating under the teachings of Shambhala lineage and decided to align my art with the flow of meditation and the flow of the creative process it fosters.
For a long time, I have used Prismacolor markers and micron pens with underlays of watercolor using bright colors and patterns intricately woven together to indicate the ups and downs of life. More recently, I have shifted to acrylic painting as my medium of choice, overcoming my long-held fear of painting. Thanks to meditation – and how it has changed my outlook on life – I have been able to see things as they are and appreciate myself more. I couldn't contain this self-discovery and decided to express and share it through my art. Skulls and meditating figures serve to imply a sense of impermanence. They are suggestive of how we all can transform ourselves into another level of awareness and self-appreciation.
