My work as an artist-painter is inspired by both inner nature and life around me. I like to think of artists as trees, conduits between vast space and earth elements. And as such, we have the capacity to bring opposing energies into harmony on the canvas. In my work and life I strive to bring these forces together.
The inspiration for recent paintings relates to my retirement and an exploration of solitude. In my search to find the place of solitude within me, I stumble on all manner of expression even chaos, as seen in The Muses and Martyr series, learning that solitude can be vastness. As the poet May Sarton says in her poem, Gestalt at Sixty, “ . . . solitude is not all exaltation . . . solitude exposes the nerve.” As in the portraits, which come quickly from some deep eternal well inside me and embody the gamut of our human condition.
