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.
