Latest Creation: Purple Tree Goddess

Catching a break between commission work, I decided to paint an image that has been marinating in my mind’s eye for some time now. The Purple Tree Goddess image is one the represents the rich strength of nature, and that the energy that runs through the trees is the same energy that runs through us. …

A Pair of Unique Divine Mother Painting Commissions

The first set of commissioned Divine Mother paintings are just about finished, with maybe a few adjustments before they are released. They are each unique, one in similar likeness to the original, and one with a different look and feel. I wanted to incorporate the balance between grounded roots (and DNA), and outstretching light and spirit. …

Latest artworks sold and their new homes

Recent artworks that have sold have gone to their new homes and owners, except for one, the Divine Wave. I’m thankful that my client was willing to let it have its moment to shine on MoSa’s wall for a little while. I put a lot of love and energy into that piece, and every once …

The Power of a Simple Spiral

Every so often, in between commission projects, art planning, and business tasks, I am inspired to paint something on a whim, an urge if you will. One evening, I felt the time was right to create a thick textured golden spiral that had been on my mind and heart for a few months. There is …
