I have always admired artists, who are able to create without a visual cue or reference. Artists who tap into something greater than themselves. Every morning, I sketch without any preconceived ideas or visual goal in mind. These sketches have evolved from a daily art practice to one of self-reflection and healing.
This creative process taps into my unconscious mind and allows me to achieve a meditative flow state. While each sketch ranges in style and technique, all share a common thread of expressed emotion. The intention of my art is to evoke others, make it accessible and serve as a catalyst for other people to share their own. I want people to connect with the process as much as the outcome, to create without over-thinking or analyzing, to create without fear, to create without expectations and to create because it’s fun. It’s about being in a safe place to quiet the mind and spark the child-like curiosity we sometimes lose in our busy lives.
Ultimately, I hope my art inspires and brings light to the world. We all need a little more of this in our lives.
