Being primarily an abstract painter, my current work is greatly inspired by the insights gained through my meditation practice.

As I begin each piece, I try to relinquish some responsibility of what the first mark will be. I do this with a blind first stroke. With my eyes closed and mind clear, the direction of the painting is born from this state of non-thinking.

Through this process I’m learning patience and non-judgement...but more importantly, trust. I trust that the theme will make its self known to me. Once I notice that the painting is giving off a certain theme, then I can just play with it, enhancing it to my best ability. I try not to squeeze the narrative too tightly. I don’t want to tell the viewer what to see. I want there to always be room for the viewers' own influences to make their mark.

That’s the beauty of abstract art I think, it allows you to be who you are when you look at it, there's no judgment, no right or wrong. If I can remain authentic in my approach then I think this bleeds through to the viewer.
