My attraction to ancient painting techniques is the quality of their craftsmanship and the pure essence of the natural materials. From beeswax and resin, to lime and sand, my perception of creativity changed radically after a strong shamanic experience. The message of the experience was that only when you hold nothing fixed, could true creativity enter. I began pouring the paint rather than applying it with a paintbrush. Through this process I am dancing between the hazard of the flowing paint and the edge of control, as in life, letting the flow of the universe enter and be directed with life’s experience to temper the current. In more recent work, I have included my paintbrush again and have found my personal trinity- including all parts of myself- mind, primal energy and spirit.
