statement

My art is inspired by my loves of historical abstraction, color, geometry and spirituality, especially by my decades long yoga and meditation practices. As I create, I write or draw on the canvas in both pencil and paint. I typically mix gestural and geometric abstractions, sometimes within a yantra style format. Specifically, I understand my visual instincts as a kind of intersection of first abstractionist Hilma af Klint's and neo-conceptualist Peter Halley's.

In my newest bodies of work, I made the color pink the focal point, or, as is said in yoga, the drishti. According to symbolists, pink is the color of universal love of oneself and of others. It represents unconditional love, understanding, passion, good health and success.
