When you enter my studio you will find many collections. Memorabilia of all kinds from family, travels and anything that finds its way into my studio. The upstairs annex holds art books, some signed by the artists I have been privileged to know over the years and resource books of all kinds. The back room houses my computer, printers and my real collection of memories and family photographs dating from the 1800’s to today. It are these Collections of Memories that enter and move me to create. I feel their presence when I enter the studio compelling me to create. My work always has a personal message embedded in each piece. Look closely and you will see them there.
I have had the good fortune through my family travels and relocations to study with many talented artists over the years. Whether it was studying fabric weaving in South Africa, Nantucket and Shaker baskets on the East Coast, painting in the Netherlands or assemblage and paper-making in California, some part of all these experiences find their way into my art. I continue to study all forms of art because they seem to intuitively enter into whatever medium I am working on at the time – abstract, mixed media paintings, collages, encaustics or photography. I call this, the Rhythm of the Canvas because the work naturally evolves as I move around each piece.
While my cherished travels and family memories are enough to spawn thousands of works, the most exciting part of being an artist is that there is always a new journey just around the corner.
