For the last 10 years, my work has been comprised of a series trifecta: Emotion, Consciousness and Illumination. These three series represent the evolution of the soul through the three aspects of existence: the body (Emotion), the mind (Consciousness) and spirit (Illumination).
My work is a reflection of my own personal journey towards emotional clarity and ultimately, hopefully, spiritual enlightenment. My mission is to achieve this personally and enable it globally so that we may all live in a more compassionate, peaceful world.

In the late ‘90’s early 2000’s I suffered from chronic back pain from a serious injury. I noticed that when I was stressed, upset or worrying about the way others thought of me, the a pain would intensify. This set me on a course of exploring the mind body connection and of healing the “self inflicted” pain that went right to my weak spot, the injury.
I worked with an energy healer who specialized in this and as I began to focus and control my mind and thoughts the pain eased and I also saw this representation (the honeycomb structure) of my energetic body/cells in my mind’s eye which gave way to this series, The Soul of Memory which addresses Cellular Memory: how we store personal memory, genetic memory and cultural memory (or as Jung calls it, the Collective Unconscious).
