Creativity does not arise in the mind. It is a universal force that penetrates all of us.
To me, art is simply about surrendering to this energy.
My process is an improvisational dance. Once the initial stroke is made, the remaining strokes arrange themselves recursively. Complexity builds until the composition reaches equilibrium. The less I fixate on the outcome, the more the piece mirrors nature's rhythms.
When we pay attention, the present moment feeds us infinite beauty. My intention is to consume a small piece of it and reflect it back to the world.
