Through honest self-knowledge and a deep understanding of darkness co-existing with light, she has the boldness to examine and confront her inner life.
My intention is to bring light into these dark areas, and this demands a certain type of bravery along with knowledge of what I am doing.
Creativity has enriched my life and enabled me to meet challenges with grace and compassion. Motivating others to access their inner drive is something I am particularly good at.
I love to buy good quality used canvases and completely turn them into something else. This is the art of alchemy; the physical transformation of one thing into another! These paintings have a life of their own.
All my paintings have layers, lots of them! Re- surfacing a canvas is the part I love most and I am not afraid to paint over something I have spent weeks on, sometimes years, if I don’t have a feel for it. These paint overs and cover ups tend to happen very spontaneously in the spur of the moment with the help of different grounds such as pastes, gels, various mediums, and different kinds of collected papers.
Some paintings are continual work in progress, and although they have resting stages before the next round they are never finished until they find a new home.
