My abstract paintings are about creating a space for contemplation, room to breathe, to meditate and relax. Created to be a safe place for solitude, peace, stillness and comfort. I seek to offer a place that can stand to be seen over and over; to see again something new, to be reminded, to be renewed. Texture, beautiful mistakes and the capturing of light guide the way until my paintings become a place. to share
