About

Joyous paintings that celebrate the spiritual experience of meditation. These paintings create a spiritual space of attentive centered openness and stillness that also elicits a peaceful and lyric joy.

In the Grief series, these paintings served as a kind of mourning and created an act of closure. Getting in touch with these emotions also began to allow the artist to make art of an emotional nature that is a response to the darker parts of human nature.
