As a contemporary abstract artist living and working in the heart of Los Angeles, I am surrounded by inspiration. From the beauty of the Pacific to the amazing sunsets, with a studio just blocks from the vibrant wholesale flower market, and adjacent building-size murals created by the worlds’ leading street artists, there is beauty in all directions. I am sometimes powered by the energy, but I also feel the need to create a counterbalance to it, which has led me to my latest series titled Minimalism.
In this new body of work, which I believe is my strongest and most personal to date, I have begun a style of painting that imparts a sense of serenity and healing through its’ calming Zen properties. My Minimalism series is partially inspired by the simplicity of the “less is more” philosophy of renowned twentieth-century German architect, Mies van der Rohe. But more than that, it is a personal expression of my spirituality and my desire to explore art as a healing tool, for both myself and my collectors. My mission is to share my art with people who desire a serene environment, whether it is their home or office. Bringing beauty and peaceful art into one’s space helps to heal and quiet a cluttered mind – that is my arts’ purpose. Many of my newest collectors are on a spiritual path, and they say they love how my art makes them feel. I am blessed to be able to create that kind of soothing atmosphere for them.
