My art has always been about the evolution of working from the unknown and applying the awareness of the action itself into a work of art. It’s a style that I’ve been doing and rediscovering for almost 20 years. Around five years ago, I started meditating under the teachings of Shambhala lineage and decided to align my art with the flow of meditation and the flow of the creative process.
I have always used Prismacolor markers and micron pens with underlays of watercolor using bright colors and patterns intricately woven together to indicate the ups and downs of life. I have since moved into acrylic painting as my medium of choice, overcoming my long-held fear of painting. I have accomplished this through meditation and how it has changed my outlook on life for the better. Seeing things as they are and appreciating myself more, I couldn’t contain this self-discovery without being able to express it, so I decided to share it through my art. Through my experience, I have learned that if I can transform from meditation, anybody can. Skulls and meditating figures are used to implicate a sense of impermanence and to prove that we all have the ability to transform ourselves to another level of awareness and self-appreciation.
