Art sustains me.
Texture, color, light and line provide the language in which I can express my life experiences. I journey through a piece along with the materials and process. The process of painting with warm beeswax and rich pigments propels me along a path of sensory discovery. The journey is the reward and the finished piece is the visual memory of that journey.
I do not believe it is the name of the school or the fame of the mentor that makes an artist. But rather, the lifelong commitment to artistic expression and to discovering those materials that allow each of us as artists to journey along our own path in joy.
