“…nurturing all that is authentic by acknowledging three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect.” Richard Powell
In keeping with the character of my work and inspiration, the statement quoted above comes very much into play during my creative process.
Once I arrive at that place where my painting brings about a sense of quiet ease, as well as a passionate craving for more, then I know this artwork has fulfilled its purpose and it is time for me to move on to my next piece. I like to describe this unfolding as a ‘hypnotic duet’, where two opposites meet without resistance.
The title of this new series is Innate Encounters. All of these pieces are intuitive, transparent and uncomplicated. They are fearless, daring and unpredictable – vivid and intense. Pigments, accents and rhythm unite and conceive artwork that is singular and distinct. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind, contemporary composition…and inquisitive in its own design.
Creating, for me, is a privilege. My essence is sealed in my paintings; and so is the energy and viewpoint of those who interpret my work. It is my honor to make the viewer a part of my journey.
