The artist works are available for review at www.millenniumizm.com.
I believe that the love of life and the peace of the soul must always be revealed in my works. It is sometimes obvious… as love is and it is sometimes very complex… as peace is. I look to the universe for the subject matter. Sometimes it appears in a flower and at others it appears in a myriad of healing color and form.
I also pull all of the invisible in nature and the universe and place them on canvas. I believe also that life is not what we see but all the elements of sound, light, color and frequency that take form and become what we do see . These elements make up our thought patterns and come to us as dreams, universal light and love.
