artist statement

The act of creating puts me in a state bliss, connecting who I am and aligning with the world around me. My art is a spiritual practice that straightens my convictions, opens my heart and mind to a greater capacity of love and creativity and deepens my awareness. The art of creating nourishes my body, mind and spirit. Body painting is a collaborative process between creativity, inspiration, vision, aesthetics, paint, technique and the energetic essence of living, breathing canvas, all melding to create an ephemeral moment in time.  Star Child is an Em*bodiment of this process.
