I created Crystal Illumination Art
to bring the transformative quality of illumination, light and color to
the human experience and celebrate its ability to inspire, heal and
nourish our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being.
I have always been fascinated and
aware of the effects of color and light in psychosomatic and
neurophysiological medicine, I have chosen to incorporate this through
my light paintings for healing.
The magic of refractory and reflective light emanating through prisms
of crystals that stimulate the sensory experience evokes a visual
dimension that captivates and envelops viewers as they experience my
original concept of light as art. Suspended crystals rotate in space
producing colorful, aesthetically pleasing, kaleidoscopic effects,
which result in a rich, visually soothing, healing and inspiring
experience that morphs light into art.
It's incredible to watch the expressions in the faces of the viewers as
they are drawn into the installations and the ebbs and flows of the
patterns in the light paintings. People of all ages are mesmerized and
touched in their own unique way. Whether it is a young child with ADD
or a stressed out corporate executive, the experience appears to take
them into a quieted world of their own.
In our unsettled times, there is a conscious humanitarian shift taking
place. I know that this is my gift to my audience. Each painting is
custom designed to meet the needs of the commission and the environment
in which it is installed. Through meditation and sharing with my
clients, it is as if I become an instrument and my art flows from
within me to them.
is a universal language. It is my aspiration to continue lighting
the way for people to experience this transformative sensory art
