Flow Connections

My artwork connects the spiritual world with the physical world. As I draw the artwork begins a dialogue, and in that exchange images are rendered through my hand onto paper. Art acts as the bridge for the subconscious and inner most being (the nucleus of divinity) in which I seek to describe in this 3rd dimension. I aim to expose our greater truth of being (the unseen) and when a viewer’s eyes connects with my art I hope they experience an expanded view of life.
