The Evolution of the Drawing Meditation

I often post my ‘Drawing Meditation‘ artwork but have yet to offer the story behind the work. So what exactly are these so-called ‘meditations.’

Drawing Meditation is not your average work of art. Each piece begins with a specific theme, however, the end product is unknown and materializes as the ‘meditation’ ensues. My work is based upon a moment-to-moment concentration of each form and how it might progress and flow with every additional shape. Every drawing is completely unique. I like to think that the drawings decide how they will manifest themselves – I simply sit back, draw, and observes what unfolds.

I first created the Drawing Meditation premise a little over a year ago. Since then, the drawings have evolved and adapted to incorporate ever-expanding themes, clients, and challenges.
