I have been involved in a love affair with color all of my life. Color excites me and motivates me to paint every day. The simple act of mixing colors fills my heart with joy. I love to imagine a breathtaking color in my mind and to mix that color perfectly on my palette.
Colors affect us on both conscious and unconscious levels. Some colors may consistently enable a certain individual to feel happy and excited, while other colors may consistently make them feel tired, sad, lonely, pensive or bored. It is my belief that combinations of colors can have the effect of helping us to integrate our feelings and thoughts in a symbolic (or unconscious) way. My goal in painting is to manipulate the energy of color in such a way as to create an emotionally and spiritually healing experience for my viewers.
