I paint with a practice of surrendering to knowing nothing and allowing inspiration to flow through me. My deepest inspiration is sourced from nature.
When I paint, I first imagine and vision, with color palettes which then arrange, often in layers, as marks and forms. My love for and connection with the natural world is expressed through strokes of pigments, many plant and mineral based, and often applied with branches and leaves, feathers and shells.
I believe we are nature.
With direct contact to the surface, palpably merging with the painting in a dance of alignment, light and color, I paint. The outcomes are often in abstract color-infused animal forms. Often layered symbols infuse the pieces, laying a palpable foundation for the resulting work.
In my work, I have an awareness of transmutation and transformation in the process, and transfiguration as a result of completing a piece. I feel the effects reach deeply within me where there is reclamation; activation of inner spaces.
I believe in magic...
I believe that what unfolds on the canvas is divine in its creation and in its form. I breathe in, entering the space of creating art, trusting that I am opening myself to allow the flow of energy that wants to express itself through me.
I believe in infinite possibilities; in beauty...
I have faith in my connection to all that is and honor life itself. I feel responsible to show up in the world sharing my gifts. By allowing, with deep appreciation for all of life, I am aware that I am guided to create and share art.
I love the process of blessing and touching blank space with the belief that the revealing and unfolding will transform into some formation of color and alignment that will enliven the soul. Embodied joy lives here.
innate light, innocence and Wisdom yearns to express into a painted form...
Feeling the importance of appreciation and gratitude transforms mere existence for me. All of the teachers in my life and my ancestors, for whom I honor, have guided me to this moment.
Painting with and being guided by visionary artist Alex Grey is an ongoing gift in my life. And for this, I am infinitely grateful.
I am a generational painter born from a family of artists, artisans, creators and entrepreneurs. My Polish and Greek ancestry is expressive and passionate, infused with imagination and strength and creative courageous compassion. As a traveler and adventurer, Peru’s Sacred Valley and the Greek island of Kythera are amongst my indigenous homes. Chicago is my birthplace and Boulder, Colorado is my current home-base. Water, mountains and the sun ground and connect me and feed my body and soul.
