My entry into being an artist was purely accidental. I came home from a wilderness trip and when editing my photos, I discovered some images that had exquisite spiritual shapes in them which were through automatic creative process became my first abstracts extracted from nature.




I enjoyed the depth and unique beauty of these shaped images much more than the original photos. In fact my best art pieces almost always come from the worst photos and I enjoy that challenge. Everyone is an artist, from cooking to singing to how they do their hair. I just produce these images in a larger scale and vibrancy that transforms the environment and the viewer. My art has a strange familiarity to it as the core of the pieces are actual photos of real objects. This process opens the doorway to self-reflection and contemplation over the illusion of individual perspective.

What are your goals?

The vision I have for my art is to continue shaping new pieces when the creative process is on inside me. I recently went on an alpine camping trip which resulted in water photos that became my latest work. I create art to experience the beauty and work with the wonders all around us. I really enjoy turning photos from my friends and clients into abstract pieces that have that emotional tie and familiarity to them. If anyone is interested, please contact me and we can arrange to co-create some unique art together from your photos!




What are you working on?

My multiyear project of writing Power to Awaken  is nearing completion (Sept 2011 release). It is a vibrantly colorful and artistic book that explores spiritual human potential and the essence of life by providing personal retreat space for experiences in self-reflection and meditation. Many of the images used are my original works and other selected images have my editing touch.


Water over Rocks


I have found that there is great power in communicating on multiple levels and through greater simplicity. Less words, more beauty and spaciousness. That is why art is so wonderful, it is “One” thing to experience, not a confusing onslaught of words and concepts. I love this quote I include in my book that is translated from the Buddha;

“Do not believe anything
because it is said by an authority,
or if it is said to come from angels,
or from Gods,
or from an inspired source.

Believe it only if you have explored it
in your own heart
and mind and body
and found it to be true.

Work out your own path, through diligence.”




So what the future holds for me is a path of less and less anxiousness and doubt, more and more joy and clarity as my energy and attention is focused on holding space for the same to be available for all.
