The starting point for all of my paintings is channelled words
from my spirit guide. With the words come the visual world of
language that I am shown.
My need to paint has evolved as a way of expressing what I see
in a more honest pursuit. The expanse of colour and form as I
paint is all consuming, as for me it touches the essence of what
I am engaged in painting.
To paint these series of paintings has touched the core of my
creativity as I search within the oil paints the honesty of expressing
what I am shown in my mind by my spirit guide. Sometimes as I
look at my palette, and mix colours until I can finally reach
the point intuitively in putting brush to canvas.
I am striving to paint as honestly as I can to reach a part of
myself and others that cannot be reached through verbal language
or linear thought.
