Art, like writing and poetry, for me is an expression of the soul…the deepest self, where time and place do not matter…I am on a higher plane when creating. There is intense spirit and energy in my hands—often I do not know where I will take my painting—I am influenced by color, by thought, and by the natural world around us. I see nature as spiritual and symbolic—and seek to speak the unknown, to convey the unseen. My work is based on intuition, and what feeling I am attuned to at the moment. I feel the world intensely, both the ‘outer’ world, and most of all, the natural world: which is deeply connected to my inner world. The natural and inner world are more important to me.
