I am a visual artist living in Vancouver, Canada and working in a wide variety of media. My art, poetry and photography that you see in my posts, pages and headers is a growing selection of past and recent work. I like to play with words within my own art and I share, on my blog, the text-based artwork of other artists. My posts also stroll through a miscellany of subjects: seasonal, food based, humorous and reflective.
My personal creativity is strongly influenced by the Surrealist concept of Automatism and also by Shamanic art practices. Both of these approaches involve a ritual journey inside oneself to evoke subconscious images that are then intuitively made tangible. I work and the images appear. I have no initial judgement and I honour and nourish the figures and forms that emerge. When this process has been true to the vision, the resulting works contain elements of mystery, paradox and magic; and are open enough for viewers to discover and reflect their own story in what they see and read.
I offer my art, writings and posts as a sharing with the hope that you will reciprocate with your own sharing.
