Over the last 11 years, my views on art have evolved from creating meditation and healing art to now also wanting to bring beauty into peoples lives through art and participation in the creative process. I live to connect people with their own creativity and the idea that it’s never too late to be something you never thought you could or planned to be. I believe deeply in the healing power of art and its ability to reveal complex and complicated emotions in a way that can be shared, understood and accepted. I’m inspired by the color of life’s great experiences and ideas. I’m inspired by the journey we all take together and the places we have yet to go. I’d like to think that as an artist, I explore the boundlessness of experience and understanding in whatever form that comes to me and through that, introduce the wonder of creation for its own sake.
I call this show ‘Beyond The Canvas’ because during our shutdown time due to Covid 19, I learned to work with resin, a new art form for me! From resin I make all sorts of things that have moved me ‘Beyond The Canvas’ and into 3D works – some serious, some whimsical and some just weird.
