I have been a healer in my professional life as a Massage Therapist since 1987 and I have recently come to realize that my life as an artist is also driven by the energy of Healing. What comes forth from my heart and hands is a healing of myself and, hopefully, brings a measure of same to those who see my work. In my Massage Series, I pay homage to my love and belief in Massage as divinely inspired.
My colored pencil work is highly detailed and realistic, a necessary component of my creative output. In contrast, and often following an extremely focused piece, I cleanse my artistic palette with expressive mixed media abstractions--equally essential to my mental, spiritual and artistic growth.
It is this alternating of focused realism and the uninhibited freedom and play of abstraction that keeps me balanced and on track.
