I have been painting and making art all of my life, and practicing many aspects of yoga all of my adult life. As part of my yoga practice, I meditate, and as I do, I sometimes get a vivid image of a completed piece before I create it. At other times I have a word, linguistic thought, or general idea in mind, and as I construct the work, I meditate on that.
It is very typical for me to combine text fragments, art historical references, yogic or tantric inspired imagery with geometry and/or gestural abstraction. In all cases I do so with the intention of bringing you the viewer into the meditative or ecstatic state I experience when conceiving and creating the work so that you may realize your own.
