God, I put my path in your brush You create the lines of my life. You paint the lines of my future And as the ink is revealed on the canvas, you reveal my destiny
Please allow me to flow in your perfect timing Let me trust in your brushstrokes
Let me acknowledge the freedom in your perfect plan
I will allow your brush strokes to paint my walk I will allow the drips of the paint to color my thoughts
As you create me with each stroke, uniquely placed on the canvas I will not question nor will I hesitate to express the life I feel you are painting in me
I will instead breathe as I allow your art to show me what I am here for I will be brave and strong and not fearful I will embrace the unknown as I know the unknown is already known by you.
My dear God in Heaven, paint my path, and let me exist in your perfect purity I will explore with no fear. I will step out without knowing where my steps will land As I know you will paint my canvas with the wings of your angels.
Here I am Lord, send me anywhere, as long as you go with me.
I paint intuitively by embracing spontaneity to allow passionate paintings to be born through a transforming layering process of acrylics and inks. Each layer informs the next story of paint. In addition to layers often you will find sand, coffee, glass beads or perhaps even a gum wrapper invoking the question of what story is being revealed. I paint what I feel, how I feel, and each found object in my art continues that story. It is my hope that you find a connection to my work and might, if only for a moment, become captivated and feel something within yourself. The art I create are visual expressions of my inner soul, spirit and passion. Once a corporate entrepreneur trapped inside a suit and wearing heels, the desire to put my feelings, thoughts, and emotions on canvas became too powerful. The life-changing event that turned the corporate pen into a paintbrush was the dark world of Alzheimer’s that struck my mother. I could not wait any longer to paint in the event that world captured me as well. Leaving the boardroom behind, what has emerged is a new language expressed on canvas. This language expresses the freedom and unbound passion to create and let my art direct itself without fear or influences that has previously stifled my intuitive style.
Constantly moving around the world, staying in one place no longer than three years at one time, living in the back of a musician’s studio, provided the opportunity to meet vast numbers of different people from all walks of life.
These experiences set the canvas for the style of abstracts I paint because I find these people, locations, and experiences are represented in each painting in some way.
