My artwork strives to revitalize the medium of visual art as a spiritual tool to communicate to the viewer a rich inner world that is accessible to all. In this way it serves as a sacred mirror, a vehicle of self discovery for both the artist in the process of creation and for the viewer as a reflection of a numinous and uncharted aspect of the psyche. My artwork manifests almost entirely from a subconscious place, influenced by the automatist techniques of the great surrealists. My artwork is also greatly influenced by non-ordinary, shamanic, and transpersonal experiences, Eastern philosophy and psychology, the thriving psychedelic avant-garde of Burning Man, and the burgeoning Visionary counter-culture. I strive to blend an eclectic array of artistic and cultural influences with a classically-informed aesthetic to produce artworks that are both visually and conceptually interesting.
