Meditation, mindfulness, experimentation and music all play a part in my approach to creating art. Listening to music enhances the letting go process and leads me to more intuitive painting. I might begin with a small sketch of just a few inches in size, dividing the space into shapes. Then I fill the shapes with textures, shading, patterns and colors. I may or may not have an intention for the sketch. Staying in the presence of the moment with the creative process enables me to find new directions, whether figurative or more abstract. Then my sketch may facilitate the beginning of a mixed-media painting or other work of art, or it may remain as a sketch in my sketchbook. Either way, I enjoy going with the flow of the creative process.
