To be, and to feel free.
I feel that creativity and healing are deeply intertwined,
for each time I begin a new project, a process begins:
Of letting go, and releasing the need to control.
Surpassing doubt, fear, and judgement.
Trusting that which is within,
and allowing for all that is.
Embracing all that I am.
Embracing all that we are.
When I come to the canvas, each time it's a process.
Of transformation. Release. And revelation.
My approach to painting is intuitive.
That which reveals itself can be psychedelic, experimental, visionary, or simply abstract.
To let go of preconceived of ideas of how things ought to be, and our perceived limitations.
Without goals and objectives, we open the doors for the unlimited potential that resides within.
Allowing the current to flow, and witnessing whatever comes about.
So each time I come to the canvas I let go, and I let flow.
Simply following whatever feels good, whatever feels fun, playful, nurturing.
Mark by mark each painting goes through an intricate journey of layer upon layer,
until eventually the final piece reveals itself.
It's not always easy, and it is a process, yet it teaches me so much.
It is what brings me here today.
It’s not always easy to trust, and just see what happens.
It takes releasing wanting to be in control, and really allowing yourself to be whoever you are in each moment,
knowing that no matter what happens, it’s ok.
Joy, Anger, Laughter, and sadness.
Mistakes. Experimentation. Confusion
It’s a journey that goes on, we all live it everyday.
New sensations to experience, lessons to be learned, and others to be unlearned.
It's life and it's beautiful.
Embrace the moment.
