Inspiration

As a contemporary, abstract artist, I am inspired by nature and color. Now retired from Jungian Psychotherapy, where I studied dreams and archetypes, I am still engaged with the image as a living entity that wants to find expression on canvas. Painting for me is like a dream that visits and images are meant to be interacted with. I love a painting that speaks to a story that evokes a memory or place. I strive to create works that not only tell a story but engages the viewer as an interactive process. I always paint from the feeling of place - not the place itself. 


Techniques

I begin with a Title, never knowing exactly what it will look like, but the Title of a piece engages me in the process. Recently I saw a street sign in Sedona, AZ. that was called, “In the Back of the Beyond”. Immediately my creative juices began to emerge and I thought, “What a great title for a painting!”  I could hardly wait to see what it would look like. Once I finished that painting, it sold immediately. I love color, shape and layers. Often I will start with several layers of paint and or collage papers that I have painted. When the background feels rich and has depth, I begin to see where it will go as a finished painting.
