“I painted my first Guide in 1993 and began to develop a relationship where I could receive imagery. The visions would play out like a movie in my head vivid and beautiful. It was a special time of awakening remembering and discovering a whole realm of consciousness. Over the next few years I began painting guides for others.
I have explored various paths with my Art but have always been pulled back to the spiritual aspect.
My work has always been about the other worlds or realms, whether in a mythical sense or a more spiritual focus. Obtaining a formal art eduction in 91 led me to follow sculpture and explore ways of communicating the link between this reality and the otherworldly realms. “
