I discovered my love for painting to be a healing balm to my spirit during some very difficult situations that came about a couple of years ago. One being the loss of my mother and another the loss of my singing voice due to some throat problems. Singing used to be my healing outlet but that was no longer an option. I decided to explore painting as an avenue of expression. I fell absolutely in love with it. I knew God had given me a precious gift to replace the one I had lost. When I paint everything else disappears. All worries and stress just melt away and I know I am completely where I am supposed to be.
I incorporate strong strokes with the knife, gentle slides of the brush or fingertips dancing across the canvas to bring the works to life. Whether it’s the ordered beauty of a landscape or the chaos of an abstract, both engage the human spirit.
My hope is that others find the same since of healing, peace or excitement through my art. Perhaps you even see your own story reflected there.
