From Seed to Flower to Fruit
Exploring the Flowering of Creativity
From the seed to the flower to fruit and back to seed again, my artwork has unfolded like a wild yet delicate garden.
2005 was a monumental year for me. I was an aspiring artist attending the University of Wisconsin, Madison, searching for meaningful connections in a sea of students & studies.
It was at this time (ten years ago), that my consciousness unearthed a sacred seed of remembrance. This seed was intuitively gifted from my heart & soul to my hands and arrived to me upon my canvas. It came to me as a reminder of all that I sought to understand. (see painting below)
This "seed" was an artistic expression of harmony, simplicity, and beauty.... composed of a most basic shape, the circle. What I discovered was a pattern that is called "the Seed of Life" which led me to the "Flower of Life." Spiraling into an elegant architecture of interconnected circles, everything seemed to fall into perfect place, literally and symbolically.
I began to cultivate a passionate exploration of these patterns and developed my awareness of what is referred to in a broad sense as "sacred geometry." Sacred geometry is a term for the fundamental geometric patterns that structure life itself.
Permeating into every layer of existence from the harmonics of light and sound, to the spiraling of galaxies and atoms, sacred geometry is a guiding force of the Cosmos.
Thus, with this sacred flower blooming in my heart, I've been on an artistic and spiritual quest of "connecting the dots". I am filled with a passionate drive to explore and share this ancient way of seeing the world.
Throughout the upcoming months, I will be sharing a retrospective look at the evolution of my artwork. By sharing some of my earlier artwork, I hope to share a more in-depth explanation of the symbolism, inspiration and life experiences that have guided my evolution.
