I have been lost for weeks. I did something in innocence. I took a class to learn a new technique and did as the instructor did. Big mistake. I became a hollow copy, which starved my soul of satisfaction and pleasure. My touch is quick, light and assured. Many times I add the greatest value by removing. By revealing what remains and allowing the history to be revealed. I do this with a feather light touch. No harsh, forceful or aggressive movements. I see immense beauty in the worn residue left behind. The same goes for people. I love the vulnerability of releasing and revealing the beautiful strength beneath. I choose to see and celebrate the scars and the character that was forged in the process.

Artist Bio:

I am a lifelong learner, open, honest, raw and pure to who I am; without compromise or exception.

I am constant and ever changing, evolving, growing and experiencing life without resistance. I choose to push past my comfort zone, following my inner wisdom and guidance, with passion and perseverance.

I do not know, is my mantra. Grounded in groundlessness, flexible and flowing, with nothing to attain and nothing to achieve.

What is happening right now is accepted wholeheartedly. There is no other choice. The present moment is where I find peace and tranquility, resting in the vast expanse of my own heart.

Compassion and forgiveness are my foundation. Knowing that nothing really matters, allows me to truly let go; without attachment, grasping, clinging, or holding on, I am free. And in freedom there is no more suffering or confusion, nothing left to lose. I am that I am, is all that remains.

My mission is to end all suffering and confusion; igniting joy, laughter and play, through the innate childlike nature, painting with compassion and forgiveness, accessing freedom and arriving in absolute liberation.
