I believe like the Australian aborigines that it is not possible to separate art from the spiritual. Art is an act of creation; it exists in spirit before it is ever realized. I am possessed when I paint; and taken on a journey with borrowed hands. I want people to experience those places I go that could not exist in our reality. Water made of birds, suns at night, land animals, and people made of fire are some of the visions I have been privy to. I don't think it is coincidence that the First Nations culture has stories of when Transformer changed people or animals into mountain ranges. Our thoughts are made of energy and are therefore infinite and immortal; these places and things exist, or where would the ideas come from?
