"My wing has mended, my heart is healed, and now its time for me to fly."

My life is a web of experiences interwoven through personal relationships with fellow humans, other living beings, and the environment, as well as an instinctual quest for truth and non-judgment. These fundamental factors are the driving force in my artistic journey, which explores social-human themes through organic elements, nature, and animals.

Inspiration comes from components found in nature, cave paintings, world travels, walks in the woods, and observing animal behavior. I am most interested in how the various pieces of flora grow effortlessly together to create patterns of absolute perfection, and the honesty demonstrated by fauna — which, in turn, results in a powerful effect to be more truthful in my life and work.  

Horses and other animals, with all their equity and interconnection to their natural surroundings, provide a wonderful framework to explore provoking themes around resurrection, death and rebirth, group-think, humility, respect, suffering, and love. Using texture and multiple layers of subtle color — occasionally adding organic media such as bones, hoof trimmings, horse hair, and feathers — is my humble attempt at recreating nature's subtle patterns in the goal of fostering harmony with both the everyday world and universal aspects of life.  

Thus far, I have observed ten essential elements in nature. These elements are rooted in my daily routine, and in my work. In simple words they can be described as EARTHY, ROUGH, TEXTURED, SMOOTH, POLISHED, IRREGULAR, DEEP, SENSUAL, UNPRETENTIOUS, and SIMPLE. All I paint has its basis in one or more of these descriptors. Everything I live for is anchored by peace and harmony in life, with nature.
