Acrylic on Wood Panel

This highly-charged abstract painting flows with the concept of growth, change, and becoming. My abstract paintings are very process-oriented and carry a spiritual meaning related to the mystery of existence and a reverence for the unfolding process of life. While working on paintings that are this detailed and colorful, I become so immersed in the work that applying paint becomes a meditative process through which I strive to achieve balance amidst chaos (similar to the concept of mushin). The colors and designs arise spontaneously and reflect my interest in tribal and aboriginal art, specifically in the act of storytelling through nonrepresentational means. My abstract art is also heavily inspired by my world travels, particularly my visits to remote tribal villages in the Kutch region of India, as well as my visits to temples and roadside shrines in Sri Lanka, India, and Nepal.

Prismacolor Colored Pencils on Archival Paper
This artwork is available for purchase here.
This cute Pomeranian is part of my new Punk Rock Puppy series. I drew her face with vibrant tones to bring out her natural coloring, and adorned her fur with with a sprinkling of yellow-teal stars and red-rimmed pink flowers. Her body is decorated with a dazzling array of colorful designs. The result is a funky, fresh rendering of a much-beloved dog breed! This fun puppy would make a great gift for anyone who adores Pomeranians. This artwork is entirely hand-drawn using Prismacolor colored pencils and has a 1/4" (1cm) border around all 4 edges for easy matting and framing.
