My art is inspired by my emotions and my own life experience and perceptions. I am also always trying to change my perspective of life which is why my style often changes.
The evolution of my artistic process is parallel to my emerging identity as an art therapist. The content of my work remains focused on the emotional aspect of self and human nature, but more cerebral themes of psychology organically found their way into my work as a result of becoming a creative arts therapist.
Although I am now trained to look at the unconsciousness of art in a completely new way, it amazes me that there is still an element of surprise with the self-revelations I am able to make through my art and process. My art is reflective of my state of mind in the moment in which it was created. Painting is the baseline of my communication, but the exploration of new techniques and forms of expression are the only constants in my creative process. I consider the making of art necessary to my existence.
