THAT EACH PERSON WHO SEES MY WORK PICKS UP A PAINTBRUSH, CAMERA, PAPER SCRAP, GLUE STICK - ANYTHING
AND SPENDS TIME SIMPLY ENJOYING THE PROCESS OF CREATING
I'm constantly wrestling between capturing memories and enjoying each moment for what it is. If there is any place where it's possible to have both, it's in the darkroom. Beauty, intrigue, and character can be drawn out even further. The fleeting becomes frozen in time. It's magical.
Painting and Mixed Media
I'm currently fascinated by assumptions and using watercolor to explore the concept. When the mind is hit with an assumption, it stands at a crossroads of a positive and negative paths. The series above was born when a friend of mine said, "No one looks at a nun and assumes she's oppressed." I had to dive in and paint women with various head coverings, hats, objects on their heads to see what they sparked in the subject, others, and myself.
OUT in Nature
It's all temporary.
Temperature, Light, Smells, Sounds, the scrapes that Sting
Every moment Spent building And Creating is A treasure
