"It's good to have an end to journey toward, but it's the journey that matters, in the end." Ursula K. LeGuin

While the paintings relate loosely to the landscape, and mainly come from the dream state, meditation and random acts of chance; the work is really an observance of the inner light that resides in everyone and everything.  I aim to bring this inner light out from the darkness where it’s been hiding; and invite the viewer to rest their attention in the paintings, to roam around and journey through the colors and shapes to discover a sense of peace.  I use color as a salvation to dispel the darkness, and ask the viewer to choose what they carry with them back into the light.  The work becomes a celebration of the contemplative in a space and time that has no definition or limitations.  The only limitation is of the capacity of the spirit itself.
