About the Artist:
Much of my inspiration as an artist comes from my life experiences and philosophies.My creative process incorporates my life experiences in a variety of ways. I often add photography from my travels. In India I bought hand-carved woodblock stamps and tikka powder, which I use in my paintings to create vibrant colors and interesting textures. I use gestural brush strokes to layer the paint on the canvas, and often repeat the process incorporating circular shapes, splatters and drips.

Yoga has changed my life in many ways and influenced my paintings as well. Painting is a bit of meditation for me yet this does not mean I am unaware of what I am doing. In fact I am more aware when I am creating, each drip or stroke or the feeling of the paint is noted. My style is continually evolving. I am excited to see how my work develops and where I’ll find inspiration next. My passion for beauty, culture, love, and life inspires me to explore and create, and I hope that comes through in my paintings.
