Mixed Media on canvas. 14wx11h. 2020.

This painting was inspired by a qigong meditation where the butterflies fly to out to the universe. The butterfly flies freely after building its strength in the cocoon. Also this work is symbolic in that butterflies can travel great distances.

Element of Nature

Acrylic on canvas. 16wx20h. 2019.

This painting is about the wilderness and depicts leaves falling. I feel free in nature and nature is important

Golden Lion

This painting reminds me how free the wildlife roams. 

Lost Treasure Found

Mixed media on wood. 12wx12w.1993. 

I felt free creating this piece because I used surrealist automatism to create it by just freely moving my brush and then accentuating areas of the painting.

Thank you, for submitting your work!
