Statement

I am constantly exploring the links between nature, body and emotions.  Part of my work manifests itself as flowing line art which can be referred to as ''organic or biomorphic abstraction''. 

I allow my intuition to guide me and let the energy flow. 

Art offers the opportunity to create moments of tranquility, awareness and contemplation; for myself and for others to experience. 

I view yoga and art as complementary practices with great therapeutic and self discovery potentials.
