In navigating our paths through life, our teachers are our guides. These guides manifest in many forms and as we open to them we experience personal growth. In this body of work, technique, substance, composition and lighting from master painters such as Caravaggio and Velasquez, (among many others,) have served to inspired me. However, beyond those icons I have been guided and influenced, spiritually, by masters of philosophy, shamanism, plant medicines and meditation. These teachers have led me to deeper insights into the nature of the creative process. It is only a step in the journey, but “Path of the Masters” is a culmination of several years of painting, learning, experimenting and a lifetime of seeking, each profound teachers in their own way.
