Artist Statement:

The Birth of Creation

The beauty of creation develops out of an enigmatic void. We often see the birth of something new in the midst of death. This makes a cycle of mysterious beginnings stemming from sometimes tragic yet necessary endings. Ideas propagate at the brink of strong emotion, creating a magical energy that has no other choice but to go somewhere safe or risk causing destruction.

Capturing the flame in your heart requires you to face fear head on and trust in the metaphysical.  This allows the beauty of nirvana in a present moment to reveal itself softly though personal expression, subsequently igniting flames in those who share time and space. Creation helps us overcome the darkest, most confining feelings of the mind. The birth of creation arrives from taking risk, sensuality, transparency, awareness and nonjudgement.  Like the beauty of a flower about to bloom, the divine feminine revels in the joy of ecstasy. Creation is an act of love.
