I’ve been painting most all of my life and am equally in love with both surrealism and abstract art. Please visit my website at MsSurreal.com. I’m also a professional photographer – website: GJfoto.com.

I’ve had 4 paintings featured on the Redbubble homepage :

“Cosmic Ocean” – Nov. 17, 2010

“Where’s Toto?” – Oct. 4, 2010

“Terra Un-Firma” – Oct. 18, 2009

“Red Eye 2” – Dec. 23, 2008

As an artist, I strive to visually capture a world that lives beyond our conventional senses. Arriving at the images that appear on my canvases is akin to a spiritual experience for me, for these images are those of morality, metaphysics and of dreams. Since childhood, I have been intrigued with the spiritual realm and as I grew, so did the urge to experience and somehow relate to these other dimensions.

There was a time when I thought through every detail in a painting. But I gradually began to try to let my subconscious take more control of the process. This led to some paintings becoming more abstract, with others still retaining a distinctly surreal feel. I’m no longer always striving for the “deep” meanings in my works. While at one time I wanted to “understand” my paintings, I now often prefer to “feel” them. We can only intellectually understand things to a limited degree, but we can feel to the depth of our souls.

Do I want others to understand my paintings? I will share my interpretations if they exist for a particular work, but each person naturally interprets a work of art according to their own personality and experiences. So I try to let my paintings “simply be”. This also allows me to see a work somewhat differently each time I look at it, depending on my frame of mind or my day’s experiences. With my artwork, I can hopefully understand myself and my world a little bit more, and to share it with others.
