I use various shapes and colors from minerals as the inspiration for my paintings. Minerals historically have been used for spiritual, emotional and physical healing. They radiate pure pattern, structure, balance, wavelength and frequency that can bring us back into harmony. I play with differently shaped planes using brushstrokes or cutting the colored acetate papers. I treat each color plane as a fragment of a mineral. These fragments are metaphors for states of mind as well as marks of a mindful practice. I wonder—can the mind become clear like a gemstone reflecting light?
