“I am letting go of trying to be myself and just Be”
“INFINITELY HERE” 96H X 48W Acrylic on Wood, Card Board, Elephant Dung Paper, Oil The enormity of all that is life shakes me to the core with both excitement and awe. We exist, but specs, in this Infinite Universal experience, trying to connect to something real. This Miya (illusion) of identity and attachment leaves me with the echoes of my voice, “Here.” Who hears my, Here? The unknown use to frighten me. Now, the unknown excites me knowing in that abyss is creation.
SOULS THROUGH UNIVERSE 72H X 48W Acrylic, Oil, House Paint, Spray Paint, Stucco, Resin on Canvas As we awaken to the expanse of our ever present existence- Do we deny our connection to life or do we emerge and heal from disconnection? In simple terms. Can you feel me?
CITY SOULS 36H X 36W Always touching on the duality between the spiritual sense of being, and this experience of ourself in the constructed world for which seems sometimes hollow. An invitation to release oneself from the bounds of perceived realities and allow for the expanse abuses of SELF.
DARKEST NIGHT OF THE SOUL 48h x 36w Oh those shadows that keep us blemished and cast off from feeling our light. Darkened, dampened- stomped and still. We can lift the veil if first we embrace the darkest night of the soul. Journey through the fear and awaken to light, truth and trust. #soul #darkestnightofthesoul #artist #abstractpainting #painter
FLOWERS 36H X 36W What is beautiful. Our perceptions of one another- our vanity exaggerated by lack of connection to ones authentic magnificent self. This leaves an inner experience of shame for the seer and the seen. Distorted ideals that leave us unable to embrace real intimacy, knowing of self and love. Hence, no hands to hold- to embrace. Women so often referenced to as flowers- in this scenario she is confused, arrogant and ignorant. The sheered she represents the deep sadness and shame- the blanket that covers the lie.
A Glimpse into my Art Studio!
WOMEN BREAKING SHAME 24H X24W Charcoal, Acrylic, Resin on Canvas

“PRAYING” (SOLD) 36H X 60W Acrylic, Tape, paper- Mixed Media on Canvas In meditation/prayer there are moments when the mind quiets and we sink into the abyss of weightless being-ness. In the moment of climax we again lose the weight f our minds and find a moment of abyss. Why are we so many ashamed to experience open weightlessness in our expression of being? To be present, raw, awake and free in a world where there is so much fear and illusion, means to find one’s courage and ultimate connection to the kundalini. Uncover the illusion, the false identities and attachments, and become present. I pray for our return to Truth- to Self, to freedom.

Reflection. Emergence into the depths of the soil and you will feel the unyielding beauty of the seed- and creation beyond even the seed.
