Art That Heals

Animals have long been our guides, teaching us through their true nature, their wild sides.

Capturing the spirit of an animal in my art is just part of an overall equation. In my original canvases, I also add the elements of minerals and semi-precious stones such as turquoise, crystals, garnets and hematite. I grind these into small pieces and dust, and suspend them in a gel medium. My intent is to add dimension to the painting, but more importantly to those sensitive to the energy of certain stones, enhance an emotional and spiritual experience.
