Why Am I an Artist?

I breathe through my paintings, when I don’t paint, I am not alive.

Being in the present moment is the secret power of my work. I lose myself in the moment I paint and everything around me disappears. I don’t plan. Everything is spontaneous. I put the white canvas in front of me, look at the colors of paint, and start listening to them. I pick the colors that I hear the loudest. Once I have the canvas, the paints, and the brushes ready the journey into the unknown begins and I am gone… And then I am back with a new creation of my breath. This is why I am an artist- to breathe, to be alive, and to show the beauty of BEING to others.
