NEW SERIES: OUROBOROS
These symbolic paintings represent the concept of eternity and endless return, as well as the unity of time’s beginning and end. Translated as ‘tail-devourer’ in Greek, it has appeared in numerous forms in a wide array of contexts.

In my abstract works, I seek a tangible soul truth, a new way to connect with our physical and emotional existence. In the process of creation, my images reveal themselves, as if searching for their own truth.
I often create several layers of materials and acrylic paint by scraping, brushing, watering, and sometimes adding textures such as ground coffee, packing paper, pebbles, gold dust, and mylar foil.
My inspiration comes from images which sear themselves into my mind, create sparks of wonder, and refuse to vanish. These images include NASA Mars photography, breathtaking mountain scenes, or my memories of living in Hawaii, Montana, Boston and Germany.
After completion of my art pieces, I often search for poetry to unlock a deeper experience of my works.
