There is a layer to all my work which addresses the wonders and “realities” of the paradox that is the universe and cosmos around us... being made of starstuff I hope we aren’t the only luminous beings occupying this magical space. My feeble contemplations of these mysteries manifest as conversions populated with textural vibrations, colorful swells and rhythmic compositions often accompanied and expanded on with original written words of my own. The act of writing removes mental blocks and allows me to use my intellect to better understand myself, others and the world around me. Clarifying my thoughts and feelings by accessing the left side of my brain harmonizes with the right side of my brain in my studio practice and with the intuitive process in which I create. This dynamic synthesis enriches my vocation and, in some ways, acts as a tuning device to align my creative ideologies.
