Commissions, Exquisite Paintings on the Nature of Flowers, exclusively for you

From the beginning of history, art and its creation have had a special connection with the divine. As a testament to that, I can tell you that when I am attuned and ready to paint, absolutely everything is stunningly beautiful. It is as if I’m peering through and into another realm of higher reality. My job is to sit in an active meditation and allow the painting to be created through me as I hold that vision. It's a spiritual pursuit, an active prayer that is actually very practical. It grounds higher reality into our terra firma, here-and-now reality. Higher vision comes into physical form while maintaining its connection with its numinous origin.


While engaged in this creative process I’ve received many gifts such as untangling myself from lots of things that no longer served me. It seems a never-ending pursuit to become free of that stuff, that is, to discern between what I am and what I am not. If I am truly observing something, what is there will reflect back to me in amazing ways. When I get deep into it and relax, the realization ultimately emerges that nothing is there! Only space.


I'm a painter, and when it comes to painting, I have always known it is not about what something should be or look like. It is a dialogue with life call it whatever you want. Though I recognized this early on, I had no words to convey it. Replacing limited consciousness with the purest presence I could muster was my goal. I didn't need or want to talk about it. In the early days, just after I graduated from college, I didn't know what I was doing or where I was going. I had just experienced profound disappointment with school and began to use meditation without realizing it. There was no turning back. I had innocently embarked on a personal healing journey that began to make me whole again. It was the most important thing in the world to me, and it still is.


Back then, as I began to re-learn and trust in the process of life, I walked solo through some very uncomfortable territory. I spent hours surrendering to the light of my being as I was guided to create more in alignment with the truth of my being. It had nothing to do with the art world, becoming famous, or anything like that. I shed many ideas and concepts that had been force-fed to me, things that never sat right with me. Consequently, I became very good at leading people back into the light of their own truth. If I'm good at anything, it's probably that. I've often seen my artwork as a doorway. If you feel drawn to it, and it makes you feel good, it's speaking to you. That's wonderful. Walk right through that door. You're invited. Welcome. Stay awhile.


When I'm creating, the place I go in my interior is key, and my skills, while important are secondary even though they're well-honed and highly developed. When I’m connected and in the zone, I create with the heart of my true being, some call that the higher self. I relax and it all comes through as it's meant to. I’m centered in what I call an ultra-alive, quiet, spaciousness and the energy of that presence or awareness is free to come through and become part of the work itself. It's an altered state, yet it feels completely normal to me. I have come to understand along the way that this state of being, is supposed to be our normal.


The light of life streams through my hands while I'm working. Engrossed in the experience of life, it is actual life that streams through me when I’m painting and creating, or just having fun. On more than one occasion I’ve been approached on a dance floor and told that streams of color were streaming out of my fingertips. Lol, fun:)


The inspiration I experience, my connection to source, comes through my fingertips and embeds itself into my creations. The energetic imprints have often been described as palpable by my collectors and full of positive and uplifting energy. My process which involves attention, intention, and all I do to make a work of art, is directed to create the new. That which has never been seen in our reality before. When I embark on behalf of specific individuals it’s become a new category of commissioned artwork I offer called Special Commissions, Exquisite Paintings on the Nature of Flowers, Exclusively for You.


I was born with the gift of vision and it is an integrated part of my being. When I began pondering how I might see deeply for the benefit of my collectors a whole new level of experience opened up for me. At the time, I wondered, could I write about this? Would people get it? Well, as it turned out, I was already doing it, and yes, people get it.


My ability to see deeply and communicate with paint and energy directly to the soul of another was becoming more apparent. Slowly, as opportunities arose, I experimented. As I opened the field and inquired on behalf of my clients, I received an instantaneous response. It seemed the information had been there all along, waiting for them. As I say, As an ambassador between the seen-unseen worlds, I bring dreams into reality through my creations. I was increasingly curious and excited about the possibilities, and this is how Special Commissions, Exquisite Paintings on the Nature of Flowers came to be.


A highly specialized category of commissioned work, I accept a limited number of these commissions per year, and it’s meant for those who feel drawn to it. Prospective clients usually contact me via email first. This helps me determine if we're a good fit. If we are, we may proceed to a video call or an in-person meeting.


How does it work? Briefly: When you ask, vivid, larger-than-life images and colors with concepts arrive spontaneously. Sometimes this occurs before an inquiry. That is how the intelligence of the quantum field operates. Usually, it dovetails with what you have in mind, and as we go about tweaking the overall framework for your commissioned artwork, the groundwork for the creation phase is set. If you have a specific flower(s), a color theme, size, and orientation you'd like, let me know. The process starts when you contact me with your inquiry.


I've always believed beauty to be an important, if not a critical gateway to truth. It loosens the mind from unconscious habits and lifts us toward greater potential. High-vibrational creations serve the whole of humanity as we are inspired to be more fully in alignment with our true nature, not just in our heads but in the real world. Alignment with the beauty of Mother Nature is our calling.
