Essentially, my paintings are keys. They are the answers I received to the questions I have asked in my own search for truth. As such they provide, not only decoration for a room, but also a focus for meditation and perhaps most importantly, a key to open doors of perception through contemplation. My decision to make my work available in print form is driven by the desire to make these visionary keys available to as many people as I possibly can. My art has been an integral part of my own search and I know it will facilitate the same expansion in you who seek answers beyond the conditioned stories in this cradle of duality that holds us all. It takes me many hours to complete a painting. I paint with a 000 brush and sit very very still. Sometimes the lines are so fine that I dare not breathe... even a breath would disturb the line. In this way the painting process is not unlike meditation or yoga. I listen so acutely that "I" dissapear and only the space between the brush's tip and canvas exists. In that silent, listening space, between the tip of my brush and canvas, I am entirely home. My paintings are the humble offerings of a lifetime's search, offered in gratitude.
