ARTIST STATEMENT

I am a Mystical Artist.
I go beyond the boundaries of ordinary living
Away from the material realms
Through other dimensions
Of experience and energies.
The subtle,
Refined,
Extra Sensory,
Beyond the Mind ~
From the Divine Source
And subtle realms of light,
The light codes of Creation
Flow through me.
With Moving Light,
My intention
Is to awaken the viewer,
To move you through subtle realms
Of feeling and experience,
To wake up the Divine Light
Already within you~
To be conscious,
To be wise,
To be loving,
To be at peace with yourself and the universe,
To be Light.
