The title means "Jewel in the Heart of the Sacred Lotus", one of the most honored mantras in Tibetan Buddhism. This piece evokes that sacredness through use of imagery and color, with a touch of calligraphic whimsy.
I create visual expressions to inspire and connect people, initiate dialog, and promote awareness and interaction for all. My work explores awareness of the interconnected reality we all live in, opening hearts and minds to an increasing level of understanding. I endeavor to create images that are visually interesting yet contain a certain level of mystery“. My goal is to involve the viewer on multiple levels, encouraging an interaction with the work mentally, emotionally and spiritually. All of my pieces are autobiographical to some extent… what I feel is what is expressed, sometimes they are conscious feelings, usually they source from a sub-conscious level. In recent years, my work has taken on a decidedly spiritual turn. ,Through my work I have come to the realization that creativity is a spiritual attribute, I feel a spiritual connection with work, both in the process of creation and in connecting with others. My work was published in International Artist's Magazine's Showcase of Master Artists of the United States in 2001. It has also appeared in the corporate offices of Young and Rubicam, and Kraft, as well as in numerous galleries and private collection, both domestically and international.
