I have been drawing since I was a child and started painting in oils when I was fifteen. My main inspiration for creating images are mythology, mysticism, symbolism, Maya textiles, optical illusions, people I meet, the fabulous landscapes on earth and sometimes an everyday sighting where the ordinary becomes the imaginary.
For me the process of applying paint to canvas is connected to healing, the addition of colour is blending away that which was before and reveals a new radiant image/being.
In my work as a complementary therapist I use Reiki and the colour energy of crystals when healing chakras and auric fields. During painting, the application of colour becomes a healing session which energises the canvas, as well as the body and soul, inside and out.
