this is a little more personal look into my work than a professional artist statement.
I have few secrets and assume those reading this
have some interest in having more in depth information about my work
and its motivations.
I believe in the transpersonal as a link to our highest ideals.
I believe in art as a means of achieving this state.
I believe in the transrational, of the primacy of wisdom going beyond the dictates of cartesian justification and as a method of developing humility, peace & joy.
I believe in art as rehearsal, as an exercise in the experience of freedom.
I believe in a practice expanded by connection with that which is greater than self.
I believe love, in all of its states is an integral part of this expansion.
I believe in a universally spiritual consciousness actualized at its core by love.
I believe the ultimate truths are based in love.
I believe the practice of art centered on these principles and processes of love, transcendence and transformation is a basic human right.
I see painting as the ultimate spiritual practice because it freezes time evoking infinity and the flow of its processes mimic processes of the sacred life force.I believe in a state of freedom achieved by ultimate balance.
