About the Artist:

I translate universal spiritual truths into abstract paintings that speak to others, regardless of their traditions.

To form visible signs of invisible grace, I use abstraction, which - so powerfully through light, color, and texture - speaks directly to the heart.

I layer my paintings with symbolism. To create symbolism, I use abstract elements, certain materials, and selected painting methods. The abstract element and universal symbol of light underlies all of my paintings. I image my Creator as Light. To capture feelings of the warmth and peace of the Divine Presence, I use a number of techniques, including the old masters use of glazes to capture luminosity. To enhance the texture, I integrate found objects that abound with symbolism, sand from the River Jordan, ashes, and palms. The torn-like edges of my paintings symbolize that we are part of something much greater - our collective Creator.

My acrylic paintings are small to large scale. I create them for all kinds of spaces: churches and chapels, gathering spaces, social centers and fellowship halls, meditation rooms, healthcare facilities, public spaces, offices, homes, and special projects. Please see my website for examples and works available for use and for sale.

I hope to work closely with you to create original paintings that reflect your journey to the sacred.
