"What art offers is space - a certain breathing room for the spirit." John Updike
"The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls." Pablo Picasso
"Art is the color and texture of your imagination." Meghan, Los Cerros Middle School
Abstract Expressionism or "action painting" is what interests me. Perhaps a colorless childhood has given way to a vibrancy that seeps into my paintings and appears as layering and texture. A sense of space and being able to "breathe" is very important in my art...and...I want the viewer to feel the energy, joy and excitement that I impart.
I focus not on the technical, but on the lyrical quality of the process and my sense of movement, direction and flow is articulated by bold color choice, line play and surface texture. As a psychotherapist and traveler on this life’s journey, I am in constant search for meaning. Art provides relevance for the soul!
