I feel my creative process bridges, and somewhat amalgamates both intuitive, and conscience realities. My paintings do not imitate life, but perhaps harness the energy and the essence of life.
In life we are conscience of present realities, yet travel forward with no actual conception of what to expect. My art making process seems to find itself in the same unpredictable reality. For I surrender a degree of control, yet I feel profoundly that my work does not fall into what could be defined as random or chance.
I feel the process is equally as important as the finished piece. It is a spiritual experience. I find myself channeling to a higher energy or light, in which the medium, the action, and the paintbrush in a sense are an umbilical between the soul, the higher self and the essence of experience.
