When I am creating art, I feel more alive than words can describe. The relationship I have with art is deep, passionate, and unending. By entering a state of flow, being completely involved in an activity for its own sake, I connect to my art wholeheartedly.
My creative process is intuitive: working with the materials available and allowing the art to be an outlet for my emotions. What inspires me to create are my personal experiences: nature, travel and my interest in phenomenological psychology - the study of perception. As a growing therapist, I am motivated to understand and unravel the endlessly complex forces at work in the human experience.
