Artist Statement

 

Making art is my way of processing feelings, emotions and learning about subtle energies.  To understand the way I am/we are in the world and the effects of the systems we have in place. Exploring our ability to transmit and create.  And expand our collective consciousness.  I translate what I feel and sense through painting, drawing, words, voice and installations.

 

My practice is rooted in the experiential, accessing knowledge through attuning to nature, the body, the mind, feeling, sensing,

inquiring.   This process takes me on a journey of recognizing and accepting denser emotions and feelings and transcending them through creativity.

 

I am currently working on ‘the Universe is Mental’, getting to the heart of it – which is primarily me processing my inner conflict as a starting point.  Interpreting ways to move through that.  It’s about further exploring the power structures in place and this time acknowledging the impacts on me personally.  Looking at the laws of the universe and challenging myself to expand.
