Samples of my work
From an early age, art has always been an integral part of my life. It has been the way I communicate with the world — whether through my career in film and television, or with a paint and brush. My visual art is a meditative sanctuary that I reserve for my private ideas and thoughts: it’s the only form of creation that is between me and the media itself, unfiltered, without the input of a team, of financiers, or even an audience. It has been a lifelong passion, and throughout my life, it is the surefire way to reconnect with myself and remind myself that there is still beauty and love in this world.
