I have always felt a deep sense of wonder for the beauty and mystery in our world. Everywhere there is a unique passage, a magical moment waiting to be captured on canvas or camera card before it passes forever into eternity. This is my path this time around: to explore the wonder of life, the mystical realms and the divine presence that flows throughout creation and to recreate it in a medium that can be shared with others.
My main focus as a photographer is fine art photography, travel, nature and wildlife photography. Many of my photos can be purchased from Getty Images for whom I am a contributing photographer or from my website as greeting cards and prints.
As an artist my desire is to create images that stimulate, happiness, peace, beauty and a glimpse of the Divine. I see the process of painting and creating art as a form of meditation, connecting with spirit and bringing through a bit of divinity and spiritual light into the world. My preferred mediums are oils and acrylic, although I also enjoy pastels, pencils, watercolor, ceramics and collage.
The mystical inclination of my soul has drawn me to explore many paths and I continually search for new creative means of expression.
At a very young age, I began the study of astrology, numerology, tarot, meditation and dream interpretation. After studying with Self Realization Fellowship and receiving a diploma from the University of Metaphysics, I worked as a teacher and spiritual counselor for over 25 years. Many of my poems and articles have been published in magazines and newsletters. Quite naturally this focus appears in my art which leans toward impressionism by its technique and also expressionism by my preference for rich, bold colors.
Digital art has added still another dimension. My Healing Angel art and Soul Portraits are a good example of this. I find that spirit manifests easily through fractal art. It is the place where art, science and spirituality meet! Everything in the natural world, including our own DNA is based on mathematical equations as are fractal designs. To me creating art is a form of meditation and sacred communion with the divine. As a result, each piece of art is a living image with its own essence to which our energy fields respond in a positive way!
I have recently completed a deck of cards based on Faery Shamanism. All of the cards are original pastel paintings and can be individually purchased as greeting cards or signed prints. Some of the originals are also still available for purchase.
Currently I am working on a book and creating a set of cards featuring my Healing Angel Art.
