ARTIST STATEMENT

‘What lies in our soul, our heART mirrors the Whole within all beings - the ‘univocity’ of nature & all of the cosmos within the Great Spirit - a conscious awareness of our place in the universe in the divine reality - the source of strength within - ‘Oneing’.  An artist with a passion in art-making for large multi-media canvases - the art is multi-faceted & engaging - large multi-medium acrylic canvases depicting abstracted expressionistic techniques - color & shape evolving from within - all part of the Whole - & some I refer to as ‘wetSketches’ - join in my journey of transformation with nature, figurative & landscape motifs worked into sketches of ebony pencil, gesso & color layers - some re-structured & re-stretched - regrouped & ‘transformed’.
