Artist Statement

My work focuses on the place where nature, human connection, and spiritualism meet. I reflect the way I perceive the world around me through a lens greatly influenced by the teachings of Rudolf Steiner and the Albert Barnes Foundation. I view my paintings as visual retreats from the anxieties of life; a tranquil moment to internally reflect and realign. My intention is not to depict direct rendering of the world, but to give a new perspective and interpretation of it.

I paint to keep myself from going static, both physically and emotionally. I draw my inspiration from nature, poetry, music, and grounded spiritual texts. The movement and science of yoga and the rhythmic therapy of eurythmy guide my creative process. Painting is an outward expression of my inward search for equilibrium and equanimity.
