"I channel my inner desires through art. Creating art gives my life a sense of purpose and nourishes my soul. 

I paint mandalas through layers of color, mark-making, collages, words, and symbolism to facilitate contemplation and seek moments of solace and inner calm. 

This creative journey is more than just art; it's a guide for self-discovery fueled by an intention to explore and understand. Acknowledging life as a mystery, I embrace the ongoing pursuit of self-knowledge."

You are what your deep, driving desire is.

As your desire is, so is your will.

As your will is, so is your deed.

As your deed is, so is your destiny.

 - The Upanishads (Brihadaranyaka IV. 4.5)
