“Painting puts me in tune with synchronicity and intuitive knowledge. My figures were standing in water before I learned that water is a symbol of initiation. I’m interested in the before times, the stories that became incorporated into religions. Moments of initiation, when our perceptions change, are what I seek to portray. My black and white palette serves the illusion of reality that is shaped by gray scale values. “
