I love creating abstract artworks. I guess in many ways I always have. There is a certain freedom and energy in creating the art, and that energy goes forward with the art for eternity.

I believe art has the power to help with healing — all sorts of healing: physical, mental, spiritual. It is in that spirit that I create my art. I’m often told that my abstracts have that power about them. That in itself is reason for me to create.

Featured below is a dozen of my newest abstract paintings on museum series panel — all created in 2012. Pearls, color shifting pigments, gold leafs and metal flakes make each an original and unique expression.
