My art is a struggle to communicate those things experienced in the isolation of our souls.
I am fascinated by the news stories of nature's power and use that as my my inspiration. I like to work with bold colors and/or textures. The printmaking method I use will depend on the type of image I wish to portray.
I was living in New Mexico when a fortuitous requirement of printmaking coursework for my graduate program in art therapy led me to expression in another medium. Since that time I have been exploring printmaking and creating soft ethereal-like inspirational images. The circle or circular movement can often be seen in my artwork. The circle is a universal symbol with extensive meaning--a continuous symbol that has no beginning and no end. Throughout my life I have created circles, benefiting from the sense of comfort, peace, and total integration.
How I feel when I am making art is perfectly described in what Don Miguel Ruiz says: "When you are in your creation and you are doing what you love to do, you become what you really are again. You are not thinking in that moment; you are expressing.” I love being in that space where I am not really thinking, I am expressing what I am feeling inside. One could say that I make art to please the eye and touch the soul.
Memory, location and nature, the inspirations
Texture and pattern, the fascination
Printmaking, the adventure.
