I began painting some 20 years ago after I found a piece I had commissioned sorely lacking, and I thought I could do better! I loved hearts, which was the subject of the commissioned piece, so I began simply painting monochromatic hearts. Over time, my art evolved with the help of an art mentor (I found on Craigslist!) into a texture rich, color driven, impasto style of painting. I expanded my work to include mandalas, suns, peace signs, and other spiritual symbols such as yin yangs and oms. A successful show at Bergamont Station further propelled my work into the public eye. But most importantly, my painting was a source of aid, comfort and contemplation during my encounter with, and healing from cancer, as I moved toward a new life and ultimately founded Mystic Journey Bookstore.
