    “For as long as I can remember, I have been drawn to both color and texture - especially as they are found in the natural world. Red iron oxide, the color of rust - and what gives our blood its hue - is one of my favorite colors, and is found in all my pieces.

    To me, some of the most interesting textures are found in the resultant marks of nature’s wearing away. Crevices, canyons and seashores all attest to the give and take of Mother Earth.

    My paintings are created in much the same way; in the layering of the acrylic paint and gels, continual re-working, and sometimes violent mark making, they become metaphors for our own lives. Imperfection trumps perfection, chaos is organized and peace prevails.”
                                        - Father Bill Moore-

    Awakened Soul is a story about how the simplicity of Mother Earth has given me a shift of needing all things to seeing all things. Living a life with overwhelming gratitude of the gifts that are given to me every day. In my work you will find the celebration of Mother Earth and see how it gives an opportunity in every moment to be present.
