For me, the act of painting is a form of yoga + meditation. Here's how it unfolds.


In the process —

I lose my sense of time + space, remaining suspended in the present.

I usually conceive a palette in advance —

mixing up the paint which can be both brilliantly saturated or monochromatic with metallic, iridescent + interference colors.



When I start —

I don't necessarily know where I am going. It's the movement, using gestural brushstrokes and personal calligraphy that gives my paintings luminescence, pulsation and life.




In the end —

It might take a week, a month or much longer. The work tells me when it's done. 

A painting is not a picture of an experience, but is the experience.
— Mark Rothko
