I had been practicing yoga most of my adult life but did not learn about the Sutras until 2018 when I began studying to be a yoga teacher. Painting is the way I express my emotional response to the world around me, and the Sutra Series was my response to the ancient yoga philosophy. The Sutras, or tenets of yoga, offer wisdom and guidelines for living a meaningful, purposeful life. The sutras were codified, transcribed in Sanskrit, and later translated into English. The paintings that emerged after my training reveal interpretations of The Sutras in hidden messages, words, rhythms, and colors.
