A Simple Life

A mindful practice of peace and joy in a world of division and uncertainty. 

"art of balance, of purity and serenity, devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter... a soothing, calming influence on the mind.”

Henri Matisse

This series focuses on moments of light and serenity and was created as an exploration into the healing process of art. These works do not intend to portray that pain does not exist, they instead offered me a way out of a unsettled mind.

Art can challenge and object, it can be a flag, a platform, memories, stories, imagination and emotion, it can be a record for the future and a path of communication,

.....and it can be a powerful source of joy and peace.

Throughout my life I will create art for many reasons, this series was created to heal.
