One part dream, one part memory and one part meditation.


One part dream, one part memory, one part meditation. The surface of these paintings are unapologetically candy apple gloss. In some cases I have added hundreds of thin layers of transparent paint (glaze) to the canvas. That means I add a thin layer of  paint to the canvas every few days over the course of a year. In some areas of these canvases you can see into the paint like a glass marble. I write little notes and words on the canvas before I begin.   I also meditate on the feelings of words while I lose myself in the paint. Eventually the paint covers the words but the feeling remains.

 This is original art and the images are representational. They have a partial narrative yet I have left space for the viewer. Life is crowded, hopefully these images leave space for your memories, your colorful dreams, and time for you to meditate. I believe everyone is an artist - even if you don't paint, I hope these resonate with your inner artist.
