My paintings represent magical and mystical experiences in the Ancient Future (where past, present & future overlap). The theme is often centered around unconditional love. They inspire aspects of ourselves as powerful beings. They enforce the belief that we are all One, weaving together the Soul Threads of all Life. My dreams have been extremely vivid and felt so real from a very young age, and these paintings unveil those hidden worlds & dimensions. The magic is in capturing those fleeting moments when I see the Spirit of the painting emerge.
I almost always start with an acrylic underpainting on canvas or board, until I have the basic information there. Then I switch to oils, and utilize egg tempera and/or casein to build the Light. I love using the Mischtechnik! Generally, I study an image for a long time to use as reference.
