My awareness of my need to paint as a means of meditational practice, was first realised in this series. It was when I recognised that I am an abstract artist - not seeking the figurative element. My art was from an internal stimulus rather than the external, visual world of objects. Any artistic training heightens one's visual awareness and thus understanding and appreciation of the world. However, like prayer or meditation, the objective of my work is to facilitate and cultivate my inner peacefulness and acceptance, gratitude and enjoyment of the world.
