The aim of my work is to try to give witness to the interplay
of the sacred and the profane revealing the spiritual dimension
in the materials of art and finding the color and shape of the ineffable.
For me painting is a spiritual practice. Like all spiritual practices it requires
an openness, to the sacred, to nature and my own personal depths.
Open so the movement, energy and aliveness I find there
can go through me into the painting. It's a quality referred
to in Japanese calligraphy as a live brush and ink.
In being an abstract painter I am not so much interested
in capturing or depicting, but trying to manifest its essence in the work.
