Part Energy (Spirit), Part Matter (Mineral) and Part Liquid (Coffee) I communicate with or without words. I'm aware that as an introvert I seek time alone knowing it's necessary for thoughtful visual contemplation. This time is used to engage my creative process as an aesthetic empath.
Light and color are present in my work. It's light that I notice. The sensory communication of the artwork is usually in natural light and color effect.
Teaching has strengthened my awareness of human expression. Many years as a public art teacher has informed my growth as a creative person, artist, and teaching artist.
I'm always viewing, listening, and learning. I work to keep child-like wonder as part of my creative life and discovery process.
LIGHT. Light is what get's me to to look first. I'm affected by light and light effects every aspect of painting and photography.
I'm generally aware, empathetic, intuitive, and organized in my artistic process. It's a sincere effort to communicate the nuance of an experience moment-to-moment, seeing, processing, and simply being in the world.
