Artist Statement

"In art, life is allowed to be as poetic and unreal as it truly is, when we look beyond the physical and the obvious. Art is my way of actively creating a physical reality capable of reflecting the unseen worlds; I merge the invisible and intangible with the mundane and obvious, by morphing the familiar and the mysterious.

My current series of drawings in gold, silver and black is inspired by the spiritual and emotional experiences I have had over the last year, starting with a trip to a temple in India. Connections with spirit, nature, emotions and the divine in its many forms, strengthened by meditation, yoga and various healing practices, are expressed in shapes, relations, contrasts, movements and lines."
