Purposeful Art for a Sustainable Philosophy
As a quiet child, growing up in cities was a constant source of stress where my primary escape from the clutter, enclosed spaces and noise of the city was through paintings and books, preferably the ones that transported me to wide open spaces with rolling clouds, open seas and golden fields. Now I am surrounded by the very places I had only visited through visual images and the written word, but have less time than ever before.
One of my core values is a deep belief in sustainability. To be sustainable is to be physically and emotionally healthy, and that means carving out space to rest the body and mind, to invest in what really matters, each other. While most things lost can be found again, time cannot be replaced.
But whether you grew up surrounded by natural beauty and are reminiscing those times by the lake, or you simply couldn’t get out enough, my artistic work was created to impart moments of solitary time, to transport you to wide open spaces where unnecessary noise is quieted, replaced by a stillness found in nature. Here you can think big, dream big, release the backpack of mental energy of all the ‘shoulds’, ‘coulds’ and ‘have-tos’ that weigh on your shoulders and be yourself.
The time and space to think clearly and to reconnect with your values and who you are shouldn’t be a luxury barricaded by geographic location, responsibilities or health barriers. My hope is that the paintings you see allows you to release pent up energy and stress. May you find yourself and those you share your living spaces with feeling a little lighter, refreshed and able to pass on the tranquility or vibrant vibes you find here.
