The creative process of “abstract” painting enables me to explore inner feelings and “awareness”. The painting “process” is also analogous to the human journey. I have no topic or content in mind before the process begins. I start with lines that move in different directions to form shapes and divide up the two-dimensional page. This form of creative image making is often referred to as “Spontaneous Art” or “Free Art Expression”, meaning it is non-directive with no pre-conceived idea about how the image will eventually look.
