Artist Statement

I have always had a deep passion and love for transcendent timeless beauty. First learning to draw and paint in early high school I then moved into making glass art behind a torch for some years. Alongside playing guitar and improvisational jamming on the weekends with my two step-brothers and friends I spent a lot of time visiting local art museums, hiking in state parks, and soaking up the elements of nature to better express and shape them on paper and canvas. Experimenting with psychedelic plant substances opened the door to the mystical realms as well as a lifelong interest in meditation and yogic practices. Integrating and seamlessly weaving all of these life experiences is what my art is all about. At times focusing on studying nature and photographic realism to stay grounded in this world as well as taking flight into the ethereal dimensions transcending space and time through spontaneous creative flow states, active imagination, dream, and hypnagogic states. My mission is to dive deeper into this great dream-like mystery, the essence of life itself as Kosmic creativity, clear light, love bliss, and profound presence as the greatest gift we can give each other. Sharing and expressing this through paintings, music, poetry, written words, yoga, nature, and the most inspiring conversations one can have in this lifetime.
