Artist Statement

    Quote by Wassily Kandinsky …

                  " The true work of art is born from the 'artist': a mysterious, enigmatic,
    and mystical  creation.

    It detaches itself from her, it acquires an autonomous life, becomes a personality,
    an independent subject, animated with a spiritual breath, the living subject of a real existence of
    being”

                 …best reflects my inner emotional landscape when I am creating my fantasy and abstract
    pictures.

    In my  FANTASY ART a shape, color or image will catch my attention and inspire a theme  or "vision
    " that I try to capture  in oil or pastel.  If you visit my Gargoyle and Goddess pages it will give you
    and idea of how this creation process works for me.


    My spiritual belief system is based on the concept of Chi, which is the life energy in all things;  Yin
    and Yang (male and female, positive and negative) that flows through everything in creation.

    The energy of Chi emits vibrant, bright colors, and when we flow in harmony with the natural
    energies around us, we tune into and feel the oneness of everything.  


       My ABSTRACT ART expresses this energy and duality using the colors associated    

       with.......

    Chakras:

                          Red          Security and survival.
                          Orange    Creativity and sexuality.
                          Yellow     Seat of our emotions.
                          Green       Represents the heart.
                          Blue         Communication.
                          Indigo      Connected to the higher self and psychic abilities
                          Purple      Home to higher spiritual realms.
