"What meaning does doing art have for you?"
Every time I come to my easel or table to work, I am
so grateful to have this channel of expression and the
dedicated time and space to do so. I see my paintings
as personal narratives. I draw upon my daily
experiences, observations, and personal history. And
through the act of creating, I attempt to make sense
of it all! In that sense doing art is like an inner dialogue
with myself. This dialogue is an essential one, without
which life would be a little less intriguing.
As a mother of a two year old, balancing time and
finding the energy is a constant issue. But at the same
time, there is no question about it. Doing art is as part
of me as saying that I am right handed. Being a
mother enriches my art and my art, I believe, enriches
my mothering. I feel fortunate that my art allows me
my "sacred time"- a time where the outer world quiets
down so that I can tune into myself. Doing art allows
me to find that core of me and let it come out onto
canvas through form and color.
