My work focuses on the intersections of art, ritual, and spirituality, and the ways in which creative process can document and facilitate personal and collective growth and evolution. My meditative and creative practices hold as a primary goal the experience and alignment of the physical and energetic aspects of the self. Drawing, painting, and embroidery become contemplative acts through which I transcribe visions that arise during meditation. A successful work transmits an essence: a quality that causes what feels like excitement, or an awakening. Completed compositions can be used as aids for further meditation, and offer viewers a quiet space to reflect and inquire about the experiences they have of matter, energy, and spirit in their own lives.
