My work is very abstract and intuitive, while also integrating what I learned as a child in India. I meditate before I paint. The subject of the artwork is spiritual or meditative, as I am in this state when I paint. Much of it mirrors the beautiful experiences from my out-of-body experience [when I was very ill in 2010], which drew me toward a magnificent white light and cocooned me in a warm embrace that showed me unconditional love and eternal peace. It showed me that I was a part of the universe—I was a part of full and united consciousness.
The artwork transpires from swift and sweeping movements that incorporate heightened colors and intense textures to communicate—much like a classical dancer. The creations take on a life of their own. The painting communicates when it needs more love and attention. Sometimes I don’t even know how a painting came to be—it’s like something deeper than my consciousness brings it to life.
In this ongoing journey, I have opened up to the understanding that my job on earth is unfinished. Reconnecting to my truest self includes my commitment to art, but also to the service of humanity—it is my desire to spread the understanding of how meditation and art create therapeutic healing for the soul while balancing the mind, body, and spirit.
