Artist Statement

The colored pencil works are inspired by a near death experience. The images are an exploration into her spirituality, soul and consciousness transformation. Infused with passion and wonder, they represent a deeper connection with divinity and the universal life force.

Artists are the energy antennas of the soul connecting to invisible dimensional spiritual realms beyond our physical earth-bound reality. Spirituality and creativity are the same forces that acknowledge a larger spirit in envisioning transformation. We are living at a unique time in history in which a paradigm shift is taking place. The evolution of human awareness is opening a wider world view. Artists that stand with researchers, scientists, shamans, mystics agree that we can awaken in people a new vision - one of peace, integrity, joy, harmony, and love.
