Painting is my passion. I enjoy discovering how we as people reflect our experiences and internalize them unintentionally. 

By meeting with each person I strive to portray their true self, inner-beauty and intensity of emotion they wish to reveal through their own self-awareness, translating their vulnerability, strength, pride, or raw beauty.  

Using large scale canvas with a mixed media multilayer process and applying different acrylic paint, jewels, beads, glass, stones, and shells, I create a portrait showing the likeness of each person reflecting their essence, depth, emotion, spiritual energy and multiple dimensions.

"In the stillness of your presence, you can feel your own formless and timeless reality as the unmanifested life that animates your physical form. You can then feel the same life deep within every other human and every other creature. You look beyond the veil of form and separation. This is the realization of oneness. This is love".

"Because you are women, people will force their thinking on you, their boundaries on you. They will tell you how to dress, how to behave, who you can meet and where you can go. Don't live in the shadows of people's judgement. Make your own choices in the light of your own wisdom".
