"Rise of the Condor"
1' x 3' / acrylic & organics $1500

Inspired from both the Vedic and Incan tradition. The snake is a symbol for knowledge and wisdom-with-awareness. The snake also symbolizes our 'shadow self'. It takes great strength to lean into and claim this side of our self so we can understand the height of our Magnificence. The feathers were found at Machu Picchu and the bright red yarn was found at a holy site in the Urubamba River Valley, blessed by Jorge Luis Delgado. Redwood cones from the Moon Tree, harkening to the memory of my grandmother and her insatiable longing to travel. As the Kundalini Goddess Serpent rises from awareness of darker depths of knowledge, she turns into the Condor, merging with Divinity, one's true nature.


"Shiva Dream Catcher"
2' x 4' / acrylic & organics $4000

East meets West in this piece that harkens to chakras, the rising of Kundalini energy, and the interwoven heart-elements of the Vedic and Native American cultures. Feathers found on the banks of Indiana ponds to the heights of Peruvian cliffs are included, as well as the offering of peacock feathers said to be favored by Lord Shiva. Elements also include redwood cones from Monterey Bay's Moon Tree. The Moon Tree was a cone when it went to the moon and back, then grew into a beautiful symbol of strength and resilience. I picked them up the day we said farewell to my beloved grandmother in the Bay. Bright red yarn was found at an obscure holy site in Peru. After ceremony, I spotted the yarn and immediately knew that I must include it in my art. It was blessed by the elder Jorge Luis Delgado. 


"Enstasis"
acrylic / 5' x 4' / $10,000

Enstasis – standing within one’s Self - is my definition of Yoga. My work is largely defined through inspirations gathered in my research of yogic history. Sanatana Dharma is a concept rooted in humanity’s first declaration of the soul’s longing for Source. 'Truth is one, paths are many.' Enstasis is a piece comprised of seven paintings. The original canvas background consists of my favorite ancient Sanskrit and modern Christian prayers. From there, images of chakras emerged, rising to the form of Nataraja – the Lord of the Cosmic Dance. Feminine abstracts of Shakti, then that of Samadhi – the Bliss State, came forth, finally followed by the face of the Buddha. The Buddha represents compassion and reminds us of our highest Self, our potential and innate holiness. A portion of proceeds benefit Blooming Life Yoga's Torchbearer of Tradition, the country's first yoga teacher training program for teenagers. 


"Adiyogi"
mixed media / 2.5' x 4' / $4250
archival fine art pigment print upon request

In the yogic culture, Shiva is not known as a god, but as the Adiyogi or the first yogi – the originator of yoga.The Adiyogi brought this possibility that a human being need not be contained in the defined limitations of our species. There is a way to be contained in physicality but not to belong to it. There is a way to inhabit the body but never become the body. There is a way to use your mind in the highest possible way but still never know the miseries of the mind. Whatever dimension of existence you are in right now, you can go beyond that – there is another way to live." ~Sadhguru / Isha Foundation Om Namah Shivaya shanti, shanti om. Nataraja Namah Shivaya, shanti om.


"Shared Path"
acrylic / 2 x 4' / $3000
archival fine art pigment print upon request

Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, the ancient and holy city of Rishikesh thrives. This is a place that feeds my spirit and I feel at home within its vibration. I have come to know and love small alley ways, shops of silk and incense, boulders on which to sit and gaze at Mata Ganga, and familiar faces of friends and travelers who greet me with a knowing smile. This is an image which attempts to evoke the rich and supportive community of Seekers that I join on my yearly pilgrimage to Rishikesh.


"Mirror Within"
mixed media / 3 x 3' / $4000
archival fine art pigment print / 20" x 20" image / $280 / larger or smaller size upon request

These simple lines are ancient and represent one of the first images of Buddha. He, along with Christ, Krishna, and other gurus - our teachers - represent the capacity of Divinity that we, ourselves, are capable of remembering, revealing, and sharing. The chakras are energy centers that have many names in many cultures. Here, they are seen in their traditional colors along with their Sanskrit representations of 'seed sounds'. Mirror Within is a living piece of work. What a camera can not capture is the many textures, iridescent colors and gold leaf which play with sunlight. Mirror Within reminds one of their true potential to be balanced, beautiful, and still.


"Sister (Hindu Goddess, Kali)"
acrylic / 3 x 3' / $4500
archival fine art pigment print / 20" x 20" image / $280 / larger or smaller size upon request

Kali is the Goddess of Birth and Destruction - Goddess of Time- who blesses us by ending our illusions of false realities which frees us from karma. Her three eyes represent past, present, the third eye also embodying astute concentration and raw power. Her tongue shows how she devoured the demon, Raktabija, who's blood created demons. Her skull necklace, comprised of the demons of ignorance, represents infinite knowledge. Her nudity shows freedom from illusions as well as holistic transparency. Kali holds a sword of higher knowledge which severs that which binds, her bowl is of purity and protection, and she holds the head of false consciousness.

My child, you need not know much in order to please Me. Only Love Me dearly. Speak to me, as you would talk to your mother, if she had taken you in her arms.


"Shiva"
3' x 4' / acrylic / $6000

In yoga, Shiva is not seen as a God, but as the first yogi, Adiyogi, and the first Guru, the Adi Guru. There is no culture that did not benefit from Adiyogi’s science of yoga. Yoga went everywhere – not as a religion, belief system, or philosophy, but as methods. Over a period of time, there have been distortions, but still, unknowingly, millions of people across the planet are doing some yogic practice. This is the only thing in the history of humanity that has lived for so long without ever being forced upon people.      ~Sadhguru 

In other traditions, Shiva is an ancient face that represents one God, seen for the first time in art 4,000 BCE in the Indus-Sarasvati Civilization.  Today, He is a part of Tri-murti, the trinity that comprises God in the form of destruction, ridding what no loner serves us.  Om Namah Shivaya.


"Asking Forgiveness"
2' x 4' / acrylic & organics / Original Not Available
archival fine art pigment print / 12" x 24" image / $300 / larger size upon request

Human history is fraught with evils inflicted upon “others”. As I painted, I felt an outpouring of emotion to symbolically heal past crimes that People, animals, land, and the richness of traditions endured.  All beings are connected.  The greatest illusion of our world is the misunderstanding that we are separate from another. There is no duality.

Without question, this piece has touched my soul and has a part of me forever within it.  I was amazed how this Native American man needed to be painted. I laid my painted hands all over the piece in a gesture to evoke healing.


"Healing"
2.5' x 4' / acrylic & oil / $2500

The purple Ajna Chakra at the Third Eye Center represents insight into one’s true self, command, and intuition. The blue Vishuddha Chakra is known as the purification center, expressive creativity, and self expression. The green Anahata Chakra literally means unhurt. It is that of love and compassion. Traditionally this chakra is found in the heart center of the body, but I placed it over a mastectomy which represents transformation, self-acceptance, and love of that transformation.

The serene, Buddha-like face has an elongated earlobe traditionally representing one who is enlightened.

Healing evokes our own trials and how we endure them to gain strength, perspective, and beauty.

Without question, this piece has touched my soul and has a part of me forever within it.  I was amazed how this Native American man needed to be painted. I laid my painted hands all over the piece in a gesture to evoke healing.


"All One - SOLD"
3' x 3' / acrylic & ink / $1800

In my travels in India, I was astonished by the romantic beauty and timeless attire of the women.  I felt that I was in a sea of people, often times in a sea of saris, and the tangible life and the self-recognition as being a part of this "sea" offered me a sense of intense oneness.

As a woman, I have no country.
As a woman, I want no country.
As a woman, the whole world is my country.

- Virginia Woolf, Three Guineas


"Shared Peace"
acrylic / 4' x 4' / $4000
Peace in the world must begin with peace within oneself.

Throughout history, spiritual attributes of the soul have been associated with the circle.  It is seen in halos, chakras, and in rituals within sacred circles.  Shared Peace harkens to our quest for enlightenment; polishing our edges to complete our own personal awakening of spiritual fulfillment to find peace.  Western peace signs and Eastern Ohm symbols are infused within circles as a blessing to those within its space. The colors awaken energy and honors the diversity and unity of our Human Story.

"Mother"
3' x 3' / acrylic / $3000

As it was in the beginning,
I say:
Here is your sacrament -
Take.  Eat.  This is my body, 
this real milk, thin, sweet, bluish,
which I give for the life of the world.
Like sap to spring it rises
even before the first faint cry is heard,
an honest nourishment
alone able to sustain you.

- Robin Morgan, "Network of the Imaginary Mother"


"Dharma"
3' x 4' / acrylic / $3600

"One acts according to one's own nature,
even a person of knowledge,
For beings follow their nature - 
what shall repression accomplish?"
Bhagavad Gita

Each of us has a purpose therefore we must fulfill it.  Dharma is weeping with a broken heart and a broken wing.  A hand print - a pledge to fulfill her duty - rests over her heart; her face is calm and her body is in the position of surrender.  A halo acts as a source of calmness within the chaos of texture and color. Dharma symbolizes our journey and choices.


"Pregnant Wisdom  (Tryambakam Mantra)"
3' x 3' / acrylic / $4500

"One acts according to one's own nature, even a person of knowledge,
Every form of life has infinite possibilities of wisdom within them. The practice of yoga and the inquisitive reflection of one's inner nature, svadhyaya, removes doubt that one is essentially Divine. The Buddha figure is pregnant with the subtle wisdom of the mantra 'Om', which is the primordial and unifying sound that connects us to this Inner Divine. The golden circle, samsara, is the Karmic wheel of birth, life, death, rebirth, that one would escape with this knowledge.
Om tryambakaṃ yajāmahe sugandhiṃ puṣṭi-vardhanam urvārukam iva bandhanān mṛtyormukṣīya māmṛtāt
Om, We sing to Lord Shiva (the God of Destruction) who nourishes all beings. May we see the binds that bound us, & may He Liberate us from fear of Death, for the sake of Immortality.

"Home Blessing"
3' x 4' / acrylic / $5500

Raw circles and stripes of color embody a protective energy.  
Sanskrit seed prayers are infused in orange, evoking health, clarity, love, peace, and unity within the environment of the painting.


"Pleasure"
3' x 4' / acrylic & oil / $6000

 

This piece is defined by emotional fluidity – it's defined by the second chakra, water, sexuality, fertility, creativity. Gold explodes from the Earth Mother as she radiates bliss  and lightness in her wholeness; in her self-pleasure. 

She wears a red bindi, representing honor, love, and enlightenment. Perhaps her alter-ego is observing from behind a veil which encircles all women's hearts.

"Third Eye"
2' x 2' / oil & acrylic / $2000

 

Third Eye represents the sixth chakra, the Ajna Chakra, where the seat of intuition resides.  The rawness of the face holds space for personal recognition to occur.  The sacred symbol of Om resides in the background, along with the seemingly chaotic organic infusions of water and gravity. Third Eye symbolizes how one must follow the unpaved path of the intuitive-nature because if there is a path, it is not yours to follow. 

"Within"
18"  x  24" / oil & acrylic / $1500
=

Invited to join an exhibit at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, Virginia, Within merges chakras with Great Goddess and Buddha in one single form.  Rumi, harkens to the merging the Self with the Divine where there is no duality between the two.

"Communion - SOLD July 2014"
4' x 4' / acrylic / $8000

My dear friend spoke of a communion that was graced with both wine and bread as well as with milk and honey. The later is so feminine and gentle and nourishing; the true communion with our Mother.
