My way of finding peace and tranquility is by walking, breathing deeply, and observing nature. There is a magical tranquility in nature which connects mind, body, and soul. We are living entities on this earth connected by earth, air, and water.
My acrylic paintings disregard the rush of everyday life and embrace what Nature gives us. I choose not to represent Nature, but paint what her energy and emotion convey, revealing that invisible sensation. I strive to show the connection between nature and human emotions. I experiment with almost everything but a brush to create translucent and luminous layers of color. I use line work to exercise control on the emotion and the composition. I hope to create a mood, not a representation, using Nature’s lines, colors and ever-changing skies. Life’s chaos can be transformed into peace if one takes a moment to breathe.
